The Crossing Cafe - Cafe
17 Market Street, NP23 6HL

Explain to the staff what you eat and don’t eat. Vegans can have a breakfast of mushrooms, tomatoes, hash browns & beans. The chip fryer is only used for chips, hash browns and fried bread, so the chips are suitable and they can also do jacket potatoes.
