The outside looks rather uninviting, worked out they did food by the ‘All day breakfast’ sign. Limited menu, food however is very good and a great place to rest for awhile, interesting building and very clean.

good food but the owner keeps ALL tips, ostensibly for 'breakages'. best to ask who serves you if the tips go to them.

We are an independant business we only keep a small percentages of the tips to encourage staff to be more carefull and also reward them for excellent service they give in other ways.
