I have been here a few times now and each time the food and service has been great. Always friendly and always good value. We usually either have breakfast or brunch and it has always been consistently good. Very nice coffee as well, especially the cappuccino! Would definitely recommend.

We were here by chance. Strolling around the town centre on a rainy day. Food is great though service is not as good as we were hoping.
