Been eating here for years. Staff are always friendly and helpful and if you want a good old-fashioned fry-up then this is the place.

Decided to have a late breakfast whilst shopping in town today with my partner having walked past several cafes that were full we decided on Poppins as it was seemingly quiet and we needed space for a buggy!

The look of the restaurant hasn't really changed at all... More
