My daughter and I popped in for breakfast today and have been in several times before for lunches too taking other family members with us. The food is always top notch and Danni is always so sweet and thoughtful. I would recommend this beautifully hidden Cafe/Restaurant to anybody.

The menu offers variety of sandwiches, jacket potatoes, breakfasts and others and with day specialities there is more that enough to choose from. The staff are very friendly, always... More

The people who work here were lovely and very helpful. Had an delicious tuna sandwich which was well presented. I then had an excellent cream tea. It was the most well presented cream tea I have ever had. The scone was cut in half and gently warmed up. The cream came in a pot along with half strawberries in another.... More

We came across this restaurant accidentally on a day trip to Cranbrook. I would thoroughly recommend it for lunches and snacks and the staff couldn't treat you better.

I like to come here for my English breakfast, coffee and a quiet read of the newspaper. The owners run a clean cheerful place. The pies and cakes all home made and more people need to discover it. Dave me a seat though
