Stopped by for lunch... very few customers. Did not have a teapot for customers & only takes cash. Maligned when I raised these issues. Last visit for us & will spread the word.

Coffee is nice (Primo) and well made and the sweets we had (apple & sour cream) was delicious, particularly on our second visit when it was prepared with much more care and presented beautifully.

Great location in middle of main retail strip and easy walking distance to trains. Very friendly service and great choice of meal selection with inside and outside dining options. Lovely Art Deco photos and appearance inside. Seating comfortable with local papers to look through during meal/ coffee.

Good welcoming atmosphere. Great desserts. Nice hot chocolate and iced chocolate. Great decor. The only downside is getting that awful rolled chicken loaf as an ingredient instead of real chicken.

Stopped off for morning tea on a cold day. Staff were very friendly and they have a great selection of home made cakes.
