Haven't been in here for a while so we thought we would go in for coffee and lunch. Service was good and paying itself was good but the nachos on the side were very bland and too much greenery. Probably personal taste.9

This is a great quayside cafe.. We had a delicious Sunday breakfast. It's unfortunate that it's served by listless pretty, possibly hung over children.. And slowly.. Never mind, it's worth the frustration. (they need somebody to drive the front of house!)

Lovely. They have a really nice menu with plenty of options. The food is fresh and tasty. You can sit in or takeaway. The cappuccino I had with hazelnut syrup was excellent. I ordered a cheese, cranberry and chicken toasty which comes with salad and crisps. The takeaway box and knife and fork are eco friendly and recyclable. Friendly and helpful staff

Great little cafe. Electricity went off, could tell it was a stressful situation for them however these things happen. We only received part of an order but they gave a full refund for the meal despite us offering to pay for what we received. Food was great and good value for the size.

I only ate cake and it was perfect, unlike the atmosphere, the staff came across as rude, unwelcoming and hostile, there were no smiles, no warmth, no general helpful attitude, this from the older staff. The younger staff were doing the best they can working in an environment with such a bad atmosphere. If that was my child, I'd encourage them to get a job elsewhere, because the older ladies attitude wasn't much better to the young member of staff.I love cake and honestly the cake was divine, but not divine enough to make me want to go back….unless maybe they do a takeaway service……the full English breakfast smelt good though.It's a busy small Cafe, and I'd heard good things about it which is why I went, actually I'd just heard the cake was the best, maybe they were just having a bad day.
