Found this via Tripadvisor as we wanted a hearty breakfast. Whilst small and unassuming outside, inside has character and fast friendly service. Good range of breakfasts to suit your appetite plus other items on menu. Fast, cooked to perfection, not greasy. All served with tea or top quality coffee.

Love popping into this cafe where you can sit in or take away. Food is always lovely and staff are very friendly. Buffets are amazing (caterplus) I wouldn't consider using anyone else if I was having a party, gathering or business meeting. Highly recommend a visit to burns cafe
