First visit to this cafe for brunch today. We both had the pork roll. Pork and crackling were plentiful, would have preferred the roll to have been toasted to give it a bit of crunch. Coffee was fine, and the garlic bread was delish. The...More

An excellent spot to pick up gourmet treats and here stores of how pigs were treated like kings before being made into sausages! Come in during the week for lunch, be early, for delicious hot meat sandwiches washed down with local beer.
