We popped in with our dog for lunch and all made very welcome. Good choice of food and drinks, reasonably priced and very fresh. Lovely ambience and will definitely return. We couldn't manage dessert but the cakes looked awesome!!

Friendly welcoming coffee shop. We had coffee and home-made cakes ( huge slices so wrapped up remains to eat later ) Our dog enjoyed his treats too. Lunch menu looked good and obviously a popular place Will call again when in the area .

Beckett's friendly and welcoming coffee shop is a treat which will leave you longing to be able to return again and again. Far beyond the corporate-style of many modern establishments, Beckett's is a haven for anyone (along with their dog) who longs to eat and...More

This is a family run and very friendly coffee shop. We went in a few times and were never disappointed.

Or should that be 'heaven'? Both, really. A gem of a place for rest and replenishment, near enough the river to be within easy reach but just off the main drag when you need a bit of peace. Our attention attracted by a cafe in...More

I would highly recommend this cafe if you have a dog with you. Owners and pets are made welcome. They also have dog bowls and chews so your pet doesn't miss out. Staff are really friendly, and the food is great too. We... More

Beckett's is a small, family-run, dog-friendly coffee shop off the beaten track in lovely Skinner Street. We serve a small but ever-changing menu made from local ingredients where possible including delicious soups and 'beckanini' - which are large, soft and not gum-cloggingly dry. Our cakes are all sticky and home-made using real butter and free-range eggs (the rhubarb and custard cake is a favourite) and new this year are home-made cookies. The coffee is delicious and all Fairtrade.
