Lunch was ok not the best we've ever had but that might be due to the fact it was so hot in there. It was a rainy lunch time but it felt like we we're sat in a greenhouse.

Lovely little friendly bistro staff very pleasant and the food is cooked to order. Pleasantly surprised at the prices very reasonable. Full English breakfast was lovely and plenty of it. Plenty of space for large families tables set out well. Altogether a nice meal.

Stopped for lunch. Was very busy and felt like to many tables are squeezed in also felt like they could have coped with another member of staff. They did prepare us for a long wait but as we were very early it didn't matter. The food was however very good.

Probably this is not a top class place but to be fair, it offers good, local food, I believe all day long, fast service and pleasant setting. A good option for lunch while shopping or loitering at Bude center

A lovely, friendly bistro, dog friendly, we took our three! I can honestly say the food was out of this world. My son said he'd never tasted a burger like it! All freshly made, nothing to much trouble, friendly staff great atmosphere. Of you don't pay urchins a visit your missing a trick!

3 of us went for breakfast and 3 of us ate well. Don't be scare to ask for something not shown on the menu, such as a sausage sandwich, as they will accommodate you. Poached eggs were just that, rather than eggs done in poaching packets. Very tasty and fresh and good coffee.

Myself and my sister along with our children (6month old and 1 year old) attempted to get a mid-morning coffee whilst we were out exploring the town. We both had the girls in prams and on arrival, we looked for somewhere suitable to sit. We were approached by a male member of staff who asked us to collapse at least... More

Okay so it all started when I was visiting Urchins because a close friend recommended it. It turns out that I found a toe nail in my spaghetti. Luckily enough I did not eat it because I saw it before I was about to. If I did eat it I may have thrown up all over the restaurant. I have... More

Great family meal out with the wife and 2 daughters. The decor and atmosphere was brilliant. We found this place by accident will watching the local carnival. The food was lovely and home cooked. Staff were really pleasant and lovely.
