last 2 Sunday mornings we have taken a great full English breakfast here,
wonderful fresh ingredients and nicely cooked...great coffee and toast too,

my only critique which lets them down is please do not serve butter in foil pre-packed portions, its tacky,
as you make such an effort with everything else then it should be no trouble to serve fresh butter with toast etc (same applies to tomato and brown sauce served in plastic portions)
apart from that its great and better than the engine room opposite which strangely enough does not open for Sunday breakfast until 10.30 (far too late)

Visited for tea with a friend. The place is usually nice enough and the staff have been very good in the past but on this particular trip someone in the kitchen was cooking up a storm LITERALLY which unfortunately involved blue cheese (which as burning!). We decided to go as the smell was pretty bad but we'd finished anyway. However I passed comment on the smell and it was like the Emporer's New Clothes - defensive, incongruent and quite off putting. We will go again but we'll stick with tea and perhaps make sure we sit outside!

I live locally and until I found this restaurant I used several in the area. Not now!!!
The staff are friendly, the food is freshly prepared and locally sourced and is excellent quality. There is a good choice and some delicious desserts and cakes.
Why go anywhere else when you have found somewhere which has everything you could want in such bright, clean and inviting surroundings.
The bonus is that the gifts, cards and art are also wonderful.

This is a nice cafe in Poundbury. While the cafe itself and outside area is quite small, the service is quick and efficient. There's a nice selection of cakes and drinks; generous portions all round. Would definitely return.

My husband and I had a beautiful lunch here. The only difficulty we had was choosing between the amazing cakes on offer.
Highly recommended
