Menu was very breakfast orientated with a few yummy alternatives. We stopped for lunch and shared the chicken breast burger which was excellent. Coffee was also very good.

What a pleasure. Cosy, unmatching furniture. Lots of wood and cute decor. Very nice, simple well cooked fresh food. Fine cup of tea served properly. A real treat in a time of plastic franchises.

Good coffee and great service. I called before I pick up my orders and it’s always great every time I visit. I enjoy going here especially the Bacon and Egg Roll and the Mocha.

On our way to up North for Christmas and wanted something for breakfast other than roadside cafe. Couldn't believe our luck when we stumbled upon Curl the Whisker Cafe in the most unlikely place right outside the entrance to a railway station. It's quaint and...More

This cafe is a real experience. Apart from the outatanding food and excellent coffee, the decor is a real eye-opener. They have an electic bunch of chairs, tables, lounges, ornaments etc.and you feel like you are in grandma's house, but in a good way
