Really impressed with the price and quality of the food. As a family of four it was really good value. Having had enough if the usual fish and chips options, this was great. It had a more healthy set of options and it was very busy. There were also a wide range of freshly prepared baguettes also available. We had... More

Lovely little coffee shop that serves baguettes, sandwiches and light snacks, and also takeaways. A good variety of fillings are on offer, and the bread is gorgeous, freshly baked and very tasty. An ideal stop-off for lunch, at very reasonable prices, with friendly service too.

Visited here for lunch whilst on holiday in the area, the food was great, with a good variety, excellent filled baguettes, my daughter and I had cheese and spring onion, delicious. The children's portions were adult sized baps, with ham off the bone, a drink and a choice of fruit or ice-cream (the owner explained how to choose by giving... More
