I run a motorcycle training school and often (very often) pay a visit to Fanny's when we are training in the area. On this occasion I attended with two students. Two of my other colleagues were already seated. Waiting at the counter to place our order. The staff member came out from the kitchen and snapped at us, "It's going... More

I came here on the way home from a business trip with a work friend as he's been before and has raved about it. Decent food but the decor is great. Opens up the imagination unlike other bland places .

We spent bank holiday weekend in Newport, and the first morning we went to a cafe that was noted as Newport's best kept secret.

I had driven past on many Sunday mornings disbelieving a cafe would be open so early. I decided this time to call in I had a full breakfast with a large OJ.

very nice transport cafe across the road from the entrance to the port of Newport. Opens very early to accomodate the workers I presume. Staff nice and friendly, food excellent. I recommend poached eggs on doorstep toast.

The girls and service were great but sadly had to sit and listen for over an hour to the owner slagging off her neighbours, certain customers and the whole area in general. Wont be going back because in my opinion those people are what pay her bills.
