“Setting the record straight”
Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Obviously the other reviewers had a bad experience, however, we had an excellent breakfast, very reasonably priced and with good friendly service. The cafe was very busy, all the table were full but the freshly cooked food arrived in good time with all our requests met. Don't be put off by a couple of bad reviews, I'm sure the majority of customers leave happy. - there seemed to be quite a few regulars when we were in which would suggest bad food is the exception.

“A revolting café”
Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

This cafe is awful. DO NOT GO. Also, on your sign, you've missed out the apostrophe on Caroline's. This is a basic grammatical error and truly unforgivable.
