“Cash Only?”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Called in for lunch on the way back from Truro. Service was quick the food OK. Sticky table. Why is this a problem in all cafes like this? Have they not heard of damp cloths? Milk shake was excellent. Came to pay with my debit card. Sorry it is cash only! I was told that the nearby Sainsburys had a cash machine which it did. Unfortunately it was not in service! So it was a walk into town to find a bank. Returned to the members of my family who were waiting. I asked the waitress why they did not take cards, 'Dunno,' came the reply. Be warned it is cash only in this place. I did not leave a tip!

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Really good stop off when walking through town. Food is really good, good value. Milk shakes went down a treat as well, staff are really good but service is quite slow- which suits when you have no where to rush off to.

“Very nice.lovely staff. But tick tick. ...30 min wait for breakfast.”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

So gutted that I have to mention how long we waited. We went twice. Lovely food and waitresses. They can only serve as quick as its made. But the drinks come....then....long after you finished. Your food comes. Shame really but it really oiked me. The second visit was busier than first and still took ages. Had a day planned out so had wof it down and walk off straight away leaving no time digest. Come on guys. Ambience is all well an good but when you need breakfast. You NEED breakfast.
