“Reasonable Cafe”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

We visited on Sat 22nd Feb 2014. We had been to see the Mallard trains at Shildon Railway Museum and decided to stop off and have a bite to eat. It's a nice clean café. My husband had the vegetable soup and bread roll. He said the soup was nice but the bread roll was a bit small and not much taste. I had wanted a Panini toastie but had just said toastie so it arrived on normal sliced bread. I had asked for onion unfortunately it was still raw. Normally a toastie is very hot but I had to eat it straight away as it was just warm. I would of quite happily paid more to have a little bit of salad with it. I can't complain as our bill was only £8.70. The staff are young and when not serving they just lean against the wall, arms folded looking board. We will be in the area again soon but will not be making a return visit to the café.
