Lovely location right on the canal. Good breakfasts and simple lunches, eg Spanish omelette is very good. The best cappuccino around! Parking can be tricky so best walk if you can

Totally unplanned my daughter and i decided to pop in for a Christmas diner. Wasn't quite sure what to expect being a cafe. It was lovely, we had the turkey and at £12.95 it was great value.

Food is ok, sometimes they aren't serving hot food which is strange. A nice place to sit and relax. Staff could be a bit more attentive, they seem more interested in chatting
