“No nonsense food. Good child's menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

We had lunch here on a rainy day. The food is generous and in a town of quirky cafe's the food is reassuringly normal for our children. The kids pizza is freshly made and got a thumbs up. I had a gourmet pie. The biggest I've had on our travels, plenty of chunks of meat in it. Coffees are cheaper than most but in slightly smaller cups, a good reason to go large. Waitress on the till very patient with our indecisive group. Have been before (7 years ago) and
Will go again.

“Lambretta's Cafe Bar”

Had lunch outside in the seats on the pavement. I had cheesecake and Orange juice usually I love cheesecake sadly I found this one way to rich and could only eat half. The setting was nice though.

“Great spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

We stopped in for a coffee and snack and would recommend this place.

We sat street-side to enjoy the sun and watch passers by. The coffee and food were both great.

The place is quirky and a great spot to have a break from shopping!! Staff were friendly and service was quick.

“Nice brunch”

Sat outside in the sun for brunch. Four of us ordered off the breakfast and lunch menu. All our food was good and came out quickly. Would come again.

Had a nice breakfast here and also visited a couple of times for coffee. Nice surroundings evocative of the sixties with helpful staff.
