Friendly service with a good choice on the menu. Numerous fillings, both hot & cold, available for sandwiches, rolls & panini's. Food well presented and tasted good too. They also have local bottled soft drinks which was a bonus

We have been coming to this cafe since we first visited the area two years ago. We now live nearby and are always happy to support a local business. Your vegan and veggie options are excellent and never dissapoint. Your coffees and tea are perfect and everyone is always friendly :)

Then later my husbands drink arrived separately and then finally my drink. The staff weren't particularly friendly but this might have been because it was busy. The cake and drinks were very nice...
