What a great place to eat! It has a mix of hearty breakfasts and Polish homemade food. Even a lovely home made lasagne. We saw how popular it is - on a weekday it was a good idea to book for lunch! The staff are...very attentive and the place has a great charm. The food is very good quality and we are bound to visit again when we next come to Leigh! Thank you to the owner - who took great pride in running the place and explained some of the dishes.More

Spotted the Wakey Wakey when we had to make an early visit to the chemist across the road. They had an outside table available so we gave it a try. Lovely doorstep sized bacon butties and very nice coffee. It was a pleasure to be...asked whether we wanted a regular or large coffee, rather than just being given a bucket sized one and charged the earth for it! Staff were welcoming and efficient and it was nice to sit and watch the world go by for a while.More

I came here with my family on the first weekend it opened after lockdown. COVID-19 rules were strictly adhere to. 3 of us had the full English breakfast which was incredibly tasty using good quality ingredients. One member of the party had an humungous proper...patty burger with the most delicious slaw. My children were super impressed with their delicious milkshakes and I thoroughly enjoyed my healthy juice - to offset my breakfast! This was a first visit for us but will definitely be back for more.More

Hit this place just before the corona madness, great little menu and food was banging. Lots of different milkshakes and yummy cakes. Service and prices also very good.

Always friendly and fast. Food always tasty and hot. Great coffee and it might seem strange to say but the best toast in town for my eggs and beans.

We had a big breakfast and smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. Everything was very tasty, very fresh and generous portions. Very quick service and friendly staff. Good atmosphere too. There are a few Polish dishes on the menu (pierogi and croquettes) so we will definitely...be back to try them. Cash only but there is an ATM a one minute walk away.More
