Popular and busy, crowded inside; we opted for a coffee outside. Snacks available but no breakfast items which was disappointing.

We were there this morning and the Scones had all sold,but the French pastries were delicious. The coffee we order extra hot and it comes as requested. We know the staff and get greeted and farewelled.

Service was warm and friendly and despite it being a busy morning I didn't feel at all rushed and the tables were cleared and cleaned promptly. Seating is... More
