    Firstly, I really do have to praise the staff. Young girls serving, all with lovely smiles and the MOS asked if we had eaten there b4. She then explained what was available at 11. am. Husband and two grandchildren had the variations of breakfasts. As I am a true vegetarian and definitely do not want to eat things designed to emulate meat, the waitress kindly agreed to do me a cream tea, tho not on menu for that time of day. This is a cheap and cheerful basic food establishment so I was not surprised to be eating a scone out of a packet, if I’m honest but there was plenty of cream and jam, a lovely pot of tea with little jug of milk. (If you have cooked breakfasts, the free tea (or coffee) does come in a mug so if you are fussy on tea strength, ask for teapot instead. They really do want the customer to be happy. So two very large breakfasts, one with two added extras, a cream tea, 3 hot drinks and two cokes came to a grand total of £20,50 . Compare this to the Songbird cafe a few doors down ( see my previous review) which was, in our opinion, truly shocking. And no, I don’t have any connection with either, we tried both for a treat with grandchildren.

    This was a pleasant surprise. Looking for some good food in the vicinity of the university, we (4 family members) booked just 30-45 min before arriving. All dishes are very well presented. Service is not professional but very good and very friendly. Quality is well above average and variety is impressive for such small place. Price was very good (£35 for 4 main dishes, 2 desserts and 4 soft drinks).

    Four of us went for breakfast, scummy breakfast, and very friendly staff. It was excellent value, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We were able to alter things we didn't like, e.g. mushrooms, and were able to swap for another item. Overall, very good value, and we have been back since.

    Stumbled across this little gem while out walking with the dog. Fabulous little place, the owners & staff were so welcoming & friendly! Our four legged friend was made very welcome too! The food was home cooked and delicious! My husband had the curry had you been served this in a restaurant of an evening you would be very pleased! All homemade and generous amounts of meat, I had the fish cakes which again was both tasty and well presented. Value for money and quality of food, I don’t think you could beat it. Will definitely return to sample the Sunday roast.

    Great...Great...Great! We visited Miss Ellie’s Cafe after a friend recommended it to me and what can I say the food is absolutely brilliant, tasty and hot and served with a smile! Nothing was too much trouble and the atmosphere of this place was wonderful! We will definitely be back to this little gem of a place soon.

    Very crowded but service and food good.I was disappointed overall as this place had been recommended to me and did not live up to my expectations. I thought there would be more room and felt quite crammed in.

    We visited here after reading reviews on tripadvisor and weren’t disappointed ! I had the open panini with chorizo, bacon , poached eggs and hollandaise sauce which was delicious and Hubby had the full English breakfast, huge and delicious also! We left very full and will definitely go back for the same and try the specials board for lunch ...

    I visited Miss Ellie’s Café for the first time recently & was impressed by the friendly atmosphere and warm welcome.The menu had enough choices to give many appealing options but not so many that it could not all be freshly cooked.I had sausages, mash & vegetables. When it arrived the presentation was impressive, the quantity rather generous, to say the least and the food excellent.The sausages were succulent, meaty and tasty - unlike some where the cereal content makes it questionable whether they should be served with mustard or marmalade. I was still in the area the next day so dined there again. I was recognised & warmly welcomed back.Some of my fellow diners had been there the previous day, & later arrivals were greeted by name so were obviously regulars - and regulars are always a good sign.I had slow roast lamb shank with mint sauce, gravy, duchesse potatoes & vegetables. The presentation, quantity and quality were as before. The gravy & mint sauce mix was so tasty that I asked for a spoon to scoop up as much as I could. A spoon was provided along with a totally unexpected but welcome offer of some bread & butter to mop up the mix.The jam roly-poly with custard for pudding was to the same excellent standard.The price charged for the quality, presentation & quantity represents the most impressive value I have encountered for years.I have paid a great deal more for smaller helpings of inferior food elsewhere and if in the area again will certainly return to Miss Ellie’s.

    Visited this cosy cafe last week whilst my car was in the garage and had a full breakfast with the best bubble and sqeak around! And well it was simply delicious, for £5.45 including tea or coffee the quilty was outstanding! This little diamond does really bring a community together many families and regulars enjoying their meals which looked scrumptious! The staff are also super friendly and I was served by the Miss Ellie herself and she was a little gem! I can’t wait to go back with the family already booked for the Sunday roast.

    Visited this beautiful little cafe last Saturday with the family and what can I say absolutely fabulous! Staff are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The food ... Oh my goodness the full breakfast is mouth watering! My husband had the rump steak (the best rump steak he had tasted) chips, onion rings, peas and tomato which was only £6 and the quality was amazing. We will definitely be coming back to this little gem when we are next in the area! Go for a visit you will not be disappointed!

    We visited this place after looking up on trip advisor. We are not local and rate the food. We don't just give accolades for very average food. Prepared and heated in microwave most of the meals appeared to be served to locals. Our dish came with a poached egg and it was hard boiled. Did not want to go back. Friendly enough but don't make the effort for the food.

    We popped to Miss Ellie’s for a late lunch today as we had read the reviews on here and wanted somewhere homely to eat. We were not disappointed. The cafe isn’t huge inside however they still manage to get quite a few tables and chairs in - without impeding on each other’s privacy. The ?owner (I apologise as I didn’t get his name) was cooking the food and the kitchen is in the cafe front. The food was delicious and really filled us up! The prices are very reasonable and the quality of the food was fantastic. The staff were so friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. I also loved how there were many regulars that came into the cafe whilst we were there - having a good chat with the ?owner whilst he was cooking. He was so friendly and happy to chat whilst he was cooking the food & Sammy (the waitress) did not stop!! She was fantastic at ensuring everyone got what they needed in a timely manner. My partner and I both said we will definitely be back as more then anything we both loved the atmosphere in Miss Ellie’s Cafe. Can’t wait to try the slow cooked roast dinners :)

    I have to say I wasn’t expecting much, but what I found inside was like a small community of people have a good chat about their lives and the local area. The food is cooked in front of you and the guy cooking the food is really friendly and makes sure you enjoyed your food. It’s very cheap, and better quality than the other cafe along the same row of shops. For a nice little taste of the community, and a cheap but enjoyable snack/breakfast etc, I highly recommend it.
