We called here on a wet Friday lunchtime. It was packed (always a good sign!). We ordered soup and bread. It was delicious. The service was efficient and friendly. We would definitely return there.

This is a great place to sit and eat and situated on a corner with views of the town going by. A wee bit pricey but good quality and their breads are very nice.
