We came to Tansy's yesterday for a full English breakfast and it was so good we returned today for my husbands birthday. Really excellent food and proper freshly cut bread. Can't recommend it highly enough and for £7 including toast and tea or coffee it was really good value for money.

This place provides a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. All dietary needs, for example gluten free, are met with ease. I highly recommend the daily homemade soups which are not only a healthy option but delicious! But regardless of what you order it is served promptly and with a smile.

This is a very popular small cafe. We were welcomed in with smiling faces and a table was found for us, even though the cafe was full. We studied the Menu and ordered, and we did not have long to wait before we received our meal. One of us had the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs with a side salad,... More

As a local I have to apologise for not using this place more often but is something I deem to rectify. Popped in on the spur of the moment with wife and daughter as they had an urgent need for cake and coffee and they weren't disappointed. Serving nice coffee and home made cakes it was a urgent need soon... More

Came upon this lovely place purely by chance during a visit to Ringwwod. We chose a sandwich as opposed to a cooked meal and when a neighbouring table was served with an English breakfast we wished that we had chosen that......however our sandwich was exceptional, lovely home made crusty style bread with delicious filling and lovely fresh side salad.

We have enjoyed snacks here before but on a busy Saturday morning, it took two requests and fifteen minutes to actually get my coffee. More to the point, there was no sense of explanation or apology, even when I reminded staff I had not been served. I was told' there's a new girl on the machine...' with at least four... More
