Came here with my husband . We ordered the Biscuit and Gravy and the Eggs Benedict. The food was so tasty and fresh. They also did a wonderful job with the biscuit. So hard to find great biscuit places nearby.

Cream is both a restaurant and a coffee shop. The coffee shop has a wonderful selection of bakery items and a variety of breakfast burritos. During the week the coffee shop has two seating areas. Go to the lounge upstairs.

Such great coffee, a lovely roasted flavour We came 3 days in a row. Lovely service too as the staff remembered our orders. Well done!
