I've wanted to try this place out for a while since moving into the area, and I'm glad I did. It's a cute, cosy little café that has bucket loads of character, friendly staff and a great atmosphere to enjoy with friends and family

I came here during my work break. 30 minutes in and I am still waiting for my food. I would understand if it was busy or if I ordered something complicated or off menu, but I ordered a chicken sandwich and a side of chips!...More
