Serving proper coffee, tasty breakfasts and delicious lunches, as well as our famous home-made cakes, our popular em's Bistro (found opposite our Home Store) is a relaxed and welcoming place to take a break. We pride ourselves on the friendliness of our service, welcoming surroundings, and above all, good food. So take a seat in one of our cosy chairs, and enjoy a well-deserved break.
