So pleased that this excellent café are expanding into larger premises in the town. They have their work cut out though - their new place is the old 'Shangri La' Thai place which was nauseatingly filthy when they took over. Wish them every success there....More

Miserable, unfriendly and unhelpful staff. Coffee was served barely warm. Basic cafe with no atmosphere. Could not recommend.

Fish chowder was absolutely amazing, packed full of beautiful flavours and substance! Can't believe we haven't tried it sooner.. And the potato, parmesan and rocket soup. Took away the salt chocolate brownies for a treat at home... Our day was complete.
