We have been here several times over the last 10 years and each time we have said, lets leave it for a while and see if it improves. The food selection wasn't large, and it took a while for our meals to be delivered and they weren't exactly piping hot. Didn't say anything as by that time we were on... More

Nice simple menu, great selection of salads and cabinet food. Great wholesome cold press juices too. Staff friendly, food arrived within 10min, despite it been a busy lunch hour, I ordered a big breakie and it was large and tasty, nice gluten free toast and very nice scrambled egg. Keep up the good work.

Fresh and delicious food. Salads are yum and coffees are good. Staff are attentive. Normally quite busy. Plenty of dining space.

Excellent service, very clean and inviting. Delicious food that caters for the majority of diets. Not cheap but you get good sized meals.

Great find! Really exciting menu it took us ages to choose. I had the sweet corn/courgette fritters & poached egg which was perfect. I would have it again!! My partner had a lentil dish with poached eggs that was also delicious. Extensive drinks menu, I went for kombucha which was probably the wrong choice as it was bottled and have... More

I went for breakfast with my partner and daughter, I ordered the big breakfast, my partner ordered pan fried taties and my daughter scrambled eggs and bacon on toast. I left disappointed as the quality of the food didn't match the price tag. It all tasted bland and uninspired and the techniques applied to the cooking were that of an... More

As a traveller through this area, I had researched food outlets and went out of my way to find this cafe and so pleased I did. It is in a lovely old building with high ceilings, brick walls and an open light filled rear area with lots of windows and a fire in winter. Food is displayed in a cabinet... More

To be honest I was very tempted to go somewhere else. Straight of the bat, the staff lacked an inviting atmosphere, perhaps because my partner and I are young, appearing both rude and uninviting. I felt like it created a negative atmosphere, however, this can easily be improved if they are willing to put the effort in. The food was... More

Sat inside by the open window was nice to not have smoke from outdoor tables wafting into the cafe. Lovely friendly staff and great coffee.
