Lovely little café with a quiet upstairs area and sofas. A great place for coffee, very friendly, peaceful and with nice food.

ASDA cafe is busy and anonymous and I could sit and wait for clients reading a book and not feeling guilty at not buying anything. The food and drink are cheap and they offer a range of snacks or meals. Tea/coffee at under £1 and a very reasonably priced big breakfast. I’ve never in three years been unable to find a table to ourselves. It’s homely but nice, and car parking in the area behind the store or in toys r us is cheap.
