A great independent cafe - fab espresso and well cooked eggs Benedict followed by a delicious slice of cake. Nice simple menu with good quality and well cooked food. Relaxing atmosphere and well priced.

This place has changed hands since I was last year many years ago and the food was very nice. We just had cakes and drinks but it was very tasty and the vibe is laid back and natural. The place...

The food was very nice and service was good, just not a huge amount of space between the tables, slightly more expensive than most lunch cafes but the food was worth it

Love this little cafe, so cosy and such a lovely atmosphere , the gentlemen made us feel so welcome and accommodated for our group to sit together and have breakfast on two mornings here! The value of the menu was outstanding i could've gone anywhere and paid double for breakfast that didn't taste as good as this cafe served us!... More
