Just popped in for breakfast to this small cafe, it was excellent! We were passing earlier and went in for a cup of tea which was very good. Went back an hour later and had a breakfast which was excellent, would definitely recommend this place.

This cafe has only one drawback it's in Chester and I'm in Coventry! Friendly staff, food and drink always good and freshly prepared.
