“Love this Cafe!”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

Lovely little cafe in the city. Small and quaint with the most mouthwatering breakfast menu. They also use local produce, recycle and provide vegan options. Great coffee too. They have the daily newspaper and great magazines available. Attention to detail is king:)

“Absolute enjoyment with great food food and coffee”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

For a fussy eater this was the best breakfast I've ever had. They were so accommodating and made my eggs with trim milk and mad me GF toast. My husband enjoyed his as well and we bought yummy meringues to eat on the long drive home. So glad we found this on trip adviser.
It's really busy there with super staff and great food.

“Great Food and Service”
Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

What stands out is the food - we had the pickled pork pie and the beef ficelle. The pie had a nice pastry and was full of pork. The roll too was full of tender beef, nice to have the horseradish mayo etc in there too. Coffee was best I've had in a while. It's a small, but cosy place - with only a few seats in and out.

“Excellent”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

We visited this cafe on our last visit 2 years ago and we thought it was great and upon our return it did not disappoint. I had salmon Hash for my breakfast and it was superb. Excellent food, great service and very good value for money.
