We visited the cafe at lunch on a Saturday after a walk around the airfield, and found it very cosy and welcoming. There was a large range of food to choose from and the staff were very friendly. It was helpful as it is a dog friendly cafe and so we stayed for hot drinks and something to eat with our dog. There was a range of ethically sourced food including : vegetarian, vegan, gluten intolerant and dairy free meals. I would definitely visit again.

We have walked passed East Side a few times but never had the occasion to pop in. Wish very much that we had've done as it's a lovely place with excellent coffee and a long and temptimg menu.
We normally take an Americano, get the real flavour, and East Side's offering was smooth and well made in both regular and larger cups. We decided to go pancake and these were fully satisfying a filling: maple syrup and bacon.
East Side appears to be well run and for both table and take away service. We really couldn't fault it but realise that word of mouth and reviews are the best ways to inform other 'brunch lovers'!

Lived in area for a while . Always passed this place . Today went in for first time with a colleague, just needed a coffee and a place to sit and chat for 15 minutes . Really refreshing to find people who are so welcoming , coffee was superb . Like the fact that this is not a big chain . Some nice food produce for sale as well . Will be back and I can only apologise for having passed this by for so long .

Thank you for a lovely review Sue, we do appreciate folk taking the time to write a review. Unlike our menu and Deli foods which we are constantly updating with great tasting British foods, Mark hasn’t changed his joke repertoire in 24 years!
Hope to see you again soon.
