Family breakfast with the dog. We were all made to feel welcome. Waitress helped us move tables when one outside became available. All the food was great. Meals were generously portioned.

I have reviewed this cafe previously and found it to be great. However last weekend’s visit did not live up to expectations. Everyone on the table asked for ‘eggs poached soft’. With only one exception they all arrived over cooked and hard. When this was...More
