Light, clean, & airy cafe in the centre of Alnwick. Plenty of parking nearby, and with easy and quick access to and from the A1. We pulled off the A1 looking for somewhere to have breakfast. Staff were very friendly and courteous. I had a bacon and egg roll (£2.80p) - no grease, very tasty in a soft bap role.... More

We popped in here for lunch, The thick vegetable was very good, the bread bun served with it was for me a bit cakey staff were very friendly and informative, the panini's were also good, and it made a pleasant change to be able to get a pint of milk from the drinks menu
