Thoroughly enjoyed dinning at Cafe SisMo. The chilly hot chocolate was wonderful and the food we had was served in good time and very tasty.

Four of us for breakfast. Lovely people, fast and friendly service. Great coffee. Croque Madam was just perfect as was the bacon and eggs. No complaints at all.

Came across the restaurant by chance on a Sunday and very pleased. Superb service with amazing attention to our comfort in their restaurant. The meals were generous proportions and we thought very good.

Stayed at the Lorenzo Motor lodge over the road so came here for breakfast each morning. Excellent menu and attentive staff. Brilliant way to start the day!

Alas last Saturday it appeared... More

Had brekky here with my wife, she had eggs Benedict and I had the french toast, Wifes was nice but mine the french toast wasn't done very well. Coffee was great though, Toffee mocha was delicious. Service was great also.

Coffee was nice. Ordered simple gluten free toast with spreads. Come out with no butter and gluten free bread is normally very small so only two small slices of bread. Was ok but could have been better.
