Having been here when it was owned by Christine and her sister and always having a great lunch I was a bit skeptical when I noticed it was under new ownership.

We use to go here when my relatives came to visit Blackburn, as it was a warm welcome from the twins, home cooked food and a large variety on the menu, when you came away you was full and happy at a good price. Went today 9th December to find that it was under new management, but we thought we’d... More

This cafe used to be a great place to eat with lovely staff and home cooked food, but sadly not anymore. We went there today and discovered it was under new management. We decided to give it a try but wish we hadn't. The home cooked meals have disappeared and now all it offers are breakfast, sandwiches, jacket potatoes and... More

Me and my mum visited the cafe for lunch today, more or less as soon as we sat down the young lady who served us provided us with menus and asked for our drink order, we were put on the spot to order within the first minute of being there. She came back with our drink order within 1 minute... More

Called in for lunch, as know we will have well cooked food, ample portions, not overfaced, good service, what we want and value for money. Just wish we lived closer. Clean and no cooking smells or greasy off odours. Very well presented. We enjoyed it.

I called in here for a early lunch, late breakfast with a friend. She ordered a full breakfast, and I ordered a cheeseburger with chips. My friend loved her full breakfast, and mine was really good. The only complaint I have is how small the cafe is, I didn't enjoy it at all as I felt like I was squashed... More
