Thought we would stop for a pleasant light snack but now little more than a Subway or Greggs. Baguette fresh but invention missing. Much the same room as the old café but somehow the 'feel' and 'quality' of the old café has disappeared.

A quick coffee and a piece of cake was the length of our visit. The coffee was a good quality , the cake was fresh and the staff friendly . Plenty of tables and chairs to rest your feet.

I used to visit here regularly when I lived locally, so it was a real treat to see a local business not only still going, but going from strength to strength. The vegetarian food selection is fabulous as well as delicious. Well done Cranks.

Self-service. Healthy, vegetarian food. Looks good, tastes fantastic. Prices are reasonable. They make their own delicious bread and cakes and there is a cook book which should be in everyone's kitchen.

The salads seem to be the best thing to eat here, crunchy, fresh, healthy. Coffee is Okay...but not the best. Gone down hill..
