A friendly cafe with takeaway service and very generous breakfasts. I had the Apprentice Full English which was plenty. The Master Full English would be just the thing if you had done about four hours manual labour beforehand. Good coffee.

Love this place and I live just up the road. Breakfast is great and the sandwiches are delicious. Just wish it was open on a Saturday!
