Had this place recommended by a friend. Lovely little venue with great gallery/shop at street level. Depending on the weather you can try their outside area, which is beautiful on a sunny day, or take a seat in their little conservatory bit. Great home made cakes and breads, EXCELLENT coffee, good service and from what I've tried of their mains this place seems to be a great all rounder: if you're feeling like something a bit bigger than a cake, definitely try their corn fritters, absolutely delicious!

What a find! Stop off on the road south to check this out. Quirky gift shop and lovely food. Go downstairs and experience the best of local produce in this popular cafe. The staff are friendly the menu always has something to tempt.

Home made everything, makes this a very popular place to eat, for visitors and locals alike. Prices are right and service is excellent. What more can I say.

They were busy. I had sore feet from walking round CD and wanted a seat and some service. They didn't seem to care. They need to sort out their process and operation so they can cope. Not resent me the customer being there. 1st rule of business, if someone wants to give you their money, have the good grace to take it. 2nd rule, make sure they feel that it was worth it. You will get away with it for a while and one day you will wake up and wonder where the customers have gone..... somewhere else as we are not mugs.... I won't be back.
