They open at 08:30, and breakfast is a calm time to enjoy the venue, with plenty of space to spread your morning newspaper out on a clean table while you plough through a hearty breakfast. Scrambled eggs and smoked salmon on a toasted bagel with a mug of fresh coffee, for example, is guaranteed to set you up for the day.
Over lunchtime they get extremely busy. The breakfast menu is still available, but they also have a range of soups, sandwiches, salads, stuffed potato skins and quiche, with specials such as beef and pork burger.
Many of the dishes are served artily on a wooden board in lieu of a plate, giving them a hearty, rustic feel. With generous portion sizes and everything cooked or toasted freshly in the kitchen behind the counter, you're sure to go away satisfied. The main problem is the crowding. Service is good even when they're busy, but it can be hard to get a seat, the room ends up very hot and noisy, and they swiftly run out of many dishes.
A display unit of leaflets about the local area will help tourists to plan their visits over their food, for example. It's thoughtfully done. The rest of the café is extremely bright, with a predominance of red. Chalkboards adorn the walls, advertising the various food and drink on offer, while the ceiling is covered in bright retro posters.
They don't have their own website, but can be found on Facebook. One final great thing about this café... they're happy to give you glasses of water with your meal, in bright beakers, perfect for the thirsty diner and particularly child-friendly.
