“Best food in Alford”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

If you're looking for a traditional English cooked breakfast or something more adventurous, you can't go wrong. The chef, Owen, really knows how to put together a great meal, quickly and with very generous portions. I have an office in the town, and probably eat out once every week or so - Cafe on the Cobbles beats all the others hands-down for both quality and value for money. If they got an alcohol licence they would probably put some of the pubs out of business!

“The best breakfast on the east coast!!!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

As a regular visitor i would not eat anywhere else in the town apart from this cafe, nothing is to much trouble, always service with a smile, the food is made with FRESH local produce (not your usual frozen rubbish) and all at excellent value for money, and the breakfasts are a guaranteed hangover cure, if you pass through the town without giving this place a try, you have most certainly missed out!!!!!!

“what superb food”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

This cafe is excellent run by Owen and Helen (mother and son)
The food is always freshly cooked to order and superb quality, very generous portions especially on their fish and chips and proper chips not par fried rubbish. They do daily specials to suit anyone. Home made pastries and cakes are scrumptious
Very friendly place with locals and visitors alike. Would highly recommend this cafe .

“What a great little place”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

You are greeted with a smile by Helen. The food is freshly and superbly cooked to order by Owen. If its not on the menu just ask, if they have the ingredients you can have it. What more would you want.
