Lovely cafe and staff member, food cooked to order, so took a bit of a time, and they added the request for fried bread!I'm a veggie, friends carnivores and we all enjoyed our food.Worth a visit.Accessibility: The Pannier Market is on a hill, side entrances provide level entrances, the Quayside entrance is provides level access to the Butchers Row Shops and stairs upto the main Market Hall.Car Parking: A few onstreet spaces outside, full when we arrived so dropped passengers off and parked just down a very steep road in the Pay and Display.Market: Market closed on the day we were there, just 2 stalls. Interesting Artisan and Craft Workshops downstairs in Butchers Row.Toilets: Loos, including for Dusabled and Baby Change in the main Market Hall.

We sought refuge in the cafe on a Sunday morning after a long and rainy cycle trip. The perfectly cooked veggie full English breakfasts sorted us out. The strong, hot filter coffee with free refills was just the ticket. And good value too!

So lovely to find a cage that does great coffee for under £2! Lovely coffee, lovely staff and great food. If you want a nice breakfast without all the faff in a peaceful setting this is great.
