Good for breakfast, eggs done right every time! Coffee lacks a bit of punch though, asked for strong or double shot every day but still pretty weak coffee! Service is really good and price is right. I'd definitely go for breakfast but coffee I'd get...More

Went there and had breakfast for two, coffee & eggs Benedict. Was good and close to our motel we were staying at.

Attentive friendly service, nice food, good selection, good coffee. Bit of a wee gem. Love the charming crockery My only criticism is the (removable) seat covers in the booths are quite grubby, seems strange since everything else is so nice.

I was staying at Towers on the Park, which doesn't have a restaurant, so went searching for breakfast - this little cafe really hit the mark. I had a wonderful cheese omelette, and they do a great coffee. Recommended.

Ok price for ok food and ok service. But why offer milk for a black coffee order .. and if your offer of extra hot water is accepted why not bring it with the coffee. Maybe offer to hold the coffee to come with food...More

Good easy spot for a coffee and a bite. If you enjoy strong coffee, you will need to get the extra shots. Our cappuccinos were tasty but quite lite. Nice variety of prepared baked goods/breakfast sandwiches.
