Couldn't face having breakfast in the hotel chain where we were staying. We came across this cafe and what a find. Had eggs benedict and a coffee. Fabulous and very reasonably priced for what was a large serving. Service very efficient- almost not enough time to read the papers!

This place couldn't really get much better but it turns from being cosey in winter to hot and claustrophobic in the summer - it can be really hard to enjoy a relaxing brunch with a sweat on.... One lady fainted while I was there and others were saying it was too hot so I'm not crazy. Just some ceiling fans... More

This café sells beautiful breakfast food and hot drinks but the stars of the show are their selection of delicious cakes. The hardest part is trying to choose!!

Had a really decent breakfast/brunch. I had the poached egg and guacamole and it was amazing. Spiced up with some sweet chilli and coriander. My father and sister had the pancakes which were excellent. Only disappointment was my mother's bacon sandwich where the bacon was vastly outweighed by the huge pieces of bread! Good selection of teas, nicely presented. Friendly... More

Thank you so much for your feedback. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed some of our popular meals. I'm so sorry about your bacon sandwich. Was it Thursday that you visited? As we unfortunately had a power cut the day before and so we were unable to provide our usual bread to later in the afternoon. We did... More

Been here so many times even willing to wait up to half an hour for a table as it is always excellent food and service. Everywhere has an off day this was it. Staff were very distracted by small children presumably their own who seemed to be running around free. Tables were not being cleared and customers waiting for service.... More

My husband and I went to No 33 as we had looked at the menu online and sounded great. We'd been at the gym in the morning and came out so so hungry, arrived just before the lunch rush and the lovely ladies got us seated within a few minutes. We both decided on the big breakfast and coffees. We... More

Been coming here every since it first opened and while most of its menu has changed the hand made cakes are fantastic and not to too be missed.

I've been a few times now. They are trendsetting with herbal teas and healthy food but it all agrees with me. The service is extremely comforting. Wonderful, happy waiters.
