A real pity because this place would do really well with just a simple change in attitude of the staff/owner. Immediately on entering and approaching the ordering desk there was no welcoming smile, just a cold atmosphere that made you feel like a hindrance. To...More

Popped in on the off chance on a sunday. Brilliant place, lovely cheese scones. Wish we had a dog to bring with us. If you have a dog and wanting dog friendly this is the place. Will come back for sure.

I often travel 25 miles on my motorcycle for breakfast at the Vanilla Kitchen and am always made very welcome. I have found the lady proprietor and all the staff to be very welcoming and friendly and the food is excellent.

What a shame this 'lady' runs this place, very very rude and arrogant, will never go again whilst she's there! Could be a gold mine, feel very sorry for her staff.
