What a little find hidden behind the post office. We went here for breakfast very affordable and accomodating. Great milkshakes and a real American vibe!

Visited Penny Black yesterday to have a cool drink and escape the heat! What a great little place, the 50's vibe was great and we loved all the retro crocks and decor! The cake looked lovely so we couldn't resist, it didn't disappoint.

Popped in with my daughter, she loved the 50's style and I liked the price and taste of the food. Brilliant little cafe. Will be popping in again

Really friendly cafe with an excellent range of gluten free options and other tasty lunches. Hidden behind the Post Office look out for the street sign and try not to be distracted by the chance to buy eclectic items on the way through the shops...More

Lovely little place with sun filled courtyard out the back ideal if you have a dog with you. Sandwiches were well filled and came with a side salad. Cakes looked homemade and tempting. My only gripe is that they could do with advertising the fact...More

Vintage inspired cafe serving teas, coffees, homemade lunches, scones, cakes and shakes! Relax with a cold drink in our sun-trap courtyard or sit inside foot tapping to rock'n roll! Our new American Diner bar is perfect for the kids to have their milkshakes. Dogs are welcome.
