Cheap price; horrible service and the food is ok. We had breakfast; eggs and so on. They were tasteless. We had to ask for coffee 5 times. People next to us were also very unhappy with the service.

very small location, very cramped... Waitresses aren't consistent with service. You don't really know who the official waitress is. The food was good though and they give a lot. I would recommend getting your food to-go/

We were staying in a hotel over the road and reading the reviews popped in for breakfast. It's what in England would be called a 'Greasy Spoon Cafe' with tatty chairs,chipped mugs, dull cutlery and the odd sauce spillage left from the previous diners. It...More
