We stayed in one of the Pods and so had breakfast and dinner here. We weren’t disappointed by any meal we had. Great quality food and good service. Wished it was this good when I did the Coast to Coast.

The woman who appears to run the cafe part is as miserable and unwelcoming as anyone could be. She seriously needs to put a smile on her face and treat paying customers with a bit more courtesy. That said, the young waiters & waitresses are...More
