Well presented, with a little reading room, balcony. garden and an old fashioned milk bar.
Good coffee and excellent scones served with a present sense of humour
Finished with a fast toasty.
Very friendly, Can easily recommend

Lovely place for a light meal. We had the chicken and mushroom risotto and one of our party had the Thai fish cakes. The risotto was possibly the very best I have ever had and the chef was happy to share his recipe with us. The fish cakes were average. Friendly staff.

Lovely staff and excellent coffee. Delicious macadamia cookie, just what I needed. Busy little spot, always people either inside or out on the chairs.

The food is poor quality and looks hastily thrown together and on holiday weekends, the staff are so frazzled they start to act a little like Basil in Fawlty Towers. A great location but the wait for the terrible food is simply not worth the effort. There are much better alternatives and the walk to Cowes is better for you than the wait at the Silverleaves General Store (which is not actually a general store).

I have been coming to this store for 20+ years. The latest management/ owners are simply terrible.

They are rude, indifferent, arrogant and everything just seems too hard.
Not wanting to take orders, smile or even say Hello.

The food is now very basic Helgas bread etc with top shelf prices.
Coffee is terrible.

I'm not going to part with my money to this shop anymore.

Worth a drive or walk to Cowes had the most beautiful breakfast at Mad Cowes. Staff so friendly, quick service and really yummy food. Check them out.
