Popped in here off the street 7th November. I had a very good GF breakast - GF fried bread, tomatoes, mushrooms and poached eggs. My wife had the light breakfast. Good coffee. Less than £20. Very pleased indeed. Good service and very friendly staff.

A great venue for breakfast; the choices are wide, the service was fast but friendly and they will even let you order to take away. Great find in a charming location.
