Been going here for years, as food generally very good, service and staff can be a bit up and down. The food variety for breakfast and lunch is excellent, we love the breakfast menu. Can be very crowded during holiday time, so advisable to book.

Had lunch at Cockles Cafe. Ordered the Nasi Goreng which was pleasant although not that authentic. Quick Service. Noisy cafe inside but outside is quieter. I have also ordered a takeaway Spring Chicken Pizza from Cockles which was delicious.
