I really enjoyed lunch here with my young granddaughter. A very warm welcome and great choice of food. Have already recommended to friends and family.
We'll be returning!

“Fantastic food in a laid back olde world antique shoppe setting ... Get fed, buy curios, chat to the lovely owners .. Perfect...”
Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

A hidden gem .... Soup and sandwiches to die for in a cafe that resembles a shabby chic museum ... Where pretty much everything is for sale .... Have a trip upstairs to the slightly junky bit and grab yourself a ( circa 1950 wooden ironing board ... Needs a new funky cover) kitsch bargain ... And the owner Simon is possibly the friendliest cafe owner I have ever bought roasted pepper and goat cheese paninis from ....
Pssst.... Just keep it a secret though ... This amazing place with scrummy reasonably priced food... Just between me and you ...

“You will want to return”
Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

I have been looking forward to this trip for a long time. From the moment I stepped foot in this aladins cave I knew an hour was too short.
The delicious smell of home cooking was a pleasant surprise. The warm hello from Simon very welcoming.
Where to start ! This is a trip back in time. Beautiful chairs of all ages and styles sliver ware, old razors, mirrors, tables, object de art,clothing beautiful pieces for everywhere in your home or someone else's.
a great way to spend leisure time browsing you just can't leave empty handed, I didn't !
