Delicious food with a twist. They were very helpful with the kids and even brought out an extra homemade marshmallow so we could all enjoy them. Fabulous!

Popped in with some colleagues from work for a spot of lunch. I & a few others went for some of the cabinet food, whilst some went off the menu. Excellent reports back from everyone - really tasty food. Have to mention the great coffee, and the awesome friendly staff too. Defo pop in, you will not be disappointed.

We came here for breakfast and what a feast. Homemade marshmallows served with lovely non sweet hot chocolate, a beautiful brioche with a ginger and orange custard. Lovely staff and nice atmosphere. A must visit.

Hazel Hayes - a cafe with added extras. I think the thing I like about Hazel the most is the amazing library of cook books at the back. I spent ages looking at a vegetarian cookbook that just about turned me vegetarian! Nice coffee, a wee magazine rack, and pretty good for people watching as is a large cafe and... More

HH did the catering for a recent family wedding and the food was exceptional both in quality and presentation. The selection of canapés was a delicious introduction to what we might expect for the meal, which was more like a restaurant dinner than a meal produced for a large number of guests. The team at Hazel Hayes was amazing throughout... More

We popped in for a quick coffee earlier this week. We saw freshly baked cheese and mustard seed scones being served up and simply could not resist. They did not disappoint. The lovely young man serving made our day. He was so charming to us two old farts! I would highly recommend this place for lunch or morning and afternoon... More
