Lovely lunch at this busy cafe right in the middle of town. Good range of veggie options for either breakfast, or lunch as well as menus for vegan, dairy & gluten free. Lunch was very tasty and the cakes are to die for

Regular visitor to this cafe. Coffee and food consistently good. Newspapers provided. Good place to have breakfast. Portions generous. My only criticism is that the butter and jam comes in packets.
