Lovely looking Italian style cafe but after ordering a bacon/sausage sandwich & expecting something special for £4, it turned up with basic supermarket bread, yes there’s the option of home cooked granary for 30p extra but I just wanted wholemeal & expected better than basic thin bread. The sandwich was filled with what seemed to be 1 sausage (which was nice but cut up into small pieces) & 1 rasher of bacon. Apart from the quality of the sausage, everything was basic & definitely not worth £4. We were very disappointed & wouldn’t recommend this cafe. They even charge extra for crispy bacon & more again if you want it toasted. Also £4. For a pot of tea

I had breakfast with friends here and we were very impressed by the friendly staff and quality of the food and drinks. We all had a cooked breakfasts which were made with quality ingredients and well presented and thankfully not in the slightest bit greasy. The food and drinks (coffee is very good) are very reasonably priced and the cafe is welcoming, attractively decorated and spotless. Would definitley return if we are in the area again.
