Stopped here just for the waffles. We all had fruit waffles....light and delicious. This place is highly recommended for those would would like to taste a "real" Belgian style waffle. The inside seating is elegant, and the service quick and cheerful.

Found this lovely cafe by accident whilst wandering round looking for an early evening light meal. We were made very welcome, and enjoyed very nice spaghetti bolognese and spaghetti with salmon.
