“Well Worth a Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

We cycled from Milford via ferry and train to Swanson to visit this cafe. We were most impressed. The menu is extensive - almost too hard to choose! We finally selected the roast vegs on Turkish bread with salad and Chorizo and Green Pea Risotto. Both dishes were delicious. Coffee is good and it was perfect sitting outside on the deck in the sunshine. The staff were welcoming and very attentive. We were certainly well fuelled for our ride over the Greenhithe Bridge back to Milford.

We went there yesterday morning. i ordered french toast and it's so tiny and wasn't nice. My partner ordered big breakfast, not that great either. We will never go back there again.
