Loaf always delivers, whether it be breakfast or lunch. A wonderful menu that constantly changes, great coffee and lovely service make loaf a perfect cafe (a more upmarket one at that!).

Been visiting loaf for 3 plus years. Food is good but the menu is long overdue an update and the place a refresh. Hopefully the new local competition will spur them on. It's the perfect rainy day cafe to indulge in the papers.
