We stopped here for coffee, but we couldn't resist the baked goods. The ginger cake and cinnamon buns were very tasty so we bought extra oat cakes to go. Service was friendly, bathrooms were clean and the view was great, too.

We stopped in last summer to grab a quick bite. The people nd the food were great. We had a sample of their oat cakes, and took the recipe. I finally had a chance to make some, and they turned out awesome.

We enjoyed a hot homestyle breakfast of eggs, toast made from homemade bread, bacon and coffee for a very reasonable price. Quick, easy and satisfying.

Hi Clucking Hen! We visited you back in the summer and regretfully we did not buy one of your t-shirts! Is it possible to buy one from you now and have it shipped?
