My first experience into stepping into yesterday. A very twee place, ordered two coffees that came out way to hot, and with very little actual coffee in it. Attentive service but average beverages..

In the quest for a respite after the night before the latter used to be a safe harbour for those looking to recover and refuel. The former tea room however was a respite from the... More

Lovely oasis in a sea of fast food. Nicely presented, very friendly staff and excellent food and drinks. Impeccably clean, with a reasonably good menu choice. Breakfast coffee comes in your own pot rather than just a small cup. The special breakfast is ample for most people and is very tasty.

Spotted this cafe amongst the fast food outlets. It's a little oasis that has great food & friendly service. The staff wore typical old time dress which immediately gave it a splendid atmosphere. There are current 4 different large rooms so you can choose your style, from Nans sitting room, Regency, cafe red, to the floral room at the front.... More
