A great welcoming, family run cafe. I had a lovely and generous full English which was delicious. Plenty of different options on offer from soups, home made quiches, cakes and vegetarian options. Very attentive and friendly staff that leave you wanting for nothing without hassling you too much! A great start to the day.

Wow... what a gem we found after a round of crazy golf that is a 1 minute walk away. Family owned cafe by mother and son with fantastic and enthusiastic waiting staff. Car park around the back. A tight knit operation driven by passion to make great food and provide excellent service. Awesome. Walkers and cyclists, families were seated. Finding a table took 5 minutes as they were busy and covid restrictions were in place. Indoors was not available at the time. The food was mouth watering - the quiches were fantastic, I mean absolutely fantastic - all made in-house by mum - coffee superbly made, and the cakes - yum.

We started going to freshers recently and have been back twice a week since. The staff are always warm and welcoming, have remembered us every time we go and the service is consistently exceptional. It really is the friendlest cafe in town, definitely go there if you want good customer service! There is sometimes a small wait for outdoor seating but it is definitely worth it. All the food is home made, we've tried the cakes, quiche and breakfast on different occasions and have never been let down. Also good for takeaways.
