Popped in for lunch and had the homemade soup. It was absolutely fabulous. Also had the half sandwich. Great value for money.

Award winning eatery; lovely home made food (chicken mayo sandwiches are amazing); very accommodating when it comes to dietary needs; polite, friendly and helpful staff. Queuing is sometimes necessary at peak times cos it's so popular, but well worth the wait

One of the best cafes in town. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Had a lovely lunch there last week good food at reasonable prices. Always seems to be busy and is popular with people who like to take away.
