Good cafe just need to expand the menu to French fry’s and would be great, breakfast rolls are great a little expensive for a small town though. Staff are normally happy and speak away to you 😁

Enjoyed our drinks but cakes never arrived and waitress looked a bit out out when I asked for them to be removed from the bill. Could do with a little bit of modernisation and was a little uncomfortable using the toilets as it opens directly...More

Service is ok-ish and the coffee passable hence the two stars but the food leaves a lot to be desired. I found the the menu is uninspiring for a cafe in 2018, more akin to 1980. I ordered a tuna mayo wrap with a side...More

4 of us went here for a quick breakfast before continuing on. The service was prompt and the food was good. I would definitely go back again as the food being served around us also looked spot on
