“A regular stop when in town”
Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

A great cafe on the main street with a quaint courtyard to relax and enjoy a meal or just a coffee. Decent sized meals and a great all-day breakfast, although the cabinet options are not extensive.

“What a shame”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

There is nothing that looks as bad on a plate as a split hollandaise, and there is nothing that screams "I don't gave a damn about my customers", than a staff member looking blankly at you when you point it out to them. Four of us ate here that day. 2 Eggs bene (with split hollandaise), one chicken wrap (made with left overs from the day before and absolutely vile) and a toasted sandwich. The only person who was happy was the person who ordered the toasted sandwich. Will I ever go back? NO! And the reason why? The staff member who did not care about her customers.

“Fantastic Eggs-Benedict”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

You can always tell a great cafe by the volume of customers and we figured this must be pretty-good because when we walked in it was chock-block! The place was abuzz and looking around you can tell every patron was thoroughly enjoying the experience of being in this establishment.
My order was the Eggs-Benedict with salmon and it was extremely yummy. My wife ordered the French Toast and it looked pretty-good as well so I couldn't resist a nibble at that - Mmmmm. Coffees were very generous in size and a great taste.I definitely recommend a visit here. Oh, so some reviewers have said there's a wait - well worth it!

“Great Chai Latte”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Liked the chai latte: extra hot and made in my own (large) keep-cup for a standard price: wonderful!! Very busy and it was a bit of wait to get the takeaway coffee, but worth the wait.
