Popped in for brunch. I had a very nice cake and coffee. I have an assistance dog and we were both welcomed. I would recommend this cafe for a drop in and eat during a shopping trip.

The lady manager was rude when we commented on the quality of the food in relation to the price. We found the place lacking any atmosphere the staff abrupt and were very disappointed with the whole experience. We could not recommend this place to anyone
