What a terrific family friendly cafe! Our waiter, Sean was so friendly and accommodating - nothing was too much trouble. The portion sizes are very generous and we really enjoyed our sandwiches.

Visited here this week with a group of friends. We had been recommended and so glad we took their advice as the meal was superb. Lots of choice, great taste and piping hot! I will certainly be going back.
