Lovely clean Cafe with very friendly and efficient staff. The food was delicious and my eggs cooked to perfection. It was very busy and yet the staff were smiley and had everything running like clock work. Highly recommend

Stopped here whilst visiting the local motorcycle shop. The staff were most welcoming and efficient. Had a bacon sandwich and a coffee which were both delicious. Obviously a small family run business. Well done. Will certainly be cafe of choice when next in the area

Although this isn’t a question and more of a statement there is not much that can be answered. I do note however that this is the same anonymous person who chose to lambast us on a totally unrelated article on Facebook... More
