Popped in here for a quick cuppa but could not resist a piece of their home made carrot cake. It was delicious. The service was second to none and would recommend for a lovely catch up with friends. Great location too.

Quaint little place, full of character and friendly service. It was let down by the quality and presentation of the food. Scrambled egg cooked for too long. In the microwave! Expected better for the price charged.

If you're vegan/Vegetarian, prepare to have some delicious options. My housemate is Vegan and GF and t was so lovely to go out and eat a meal with her that was no issue to prepare and actually avoided being all leaves. Thank you!
