Great service, great breakfast and as I am not a coffee purist it was really nice to be served a hot one rather than lukewarm. Will definitely visit again. I think It's important to support our local businesses

We have visited cafe Rita many times and always enjoy the food. The menu is varied with plenty on offer whether it's breakfast, brunch, lunch or afternoon tea. The decor is very classy. The only thing that lets the place down a little bit is that quite often the staff appear to have food spilled down their own clothes or... More
