Laid back cafe and takeaway. The best pizzas around. We travel there just for them. Also really good Afghan biscuits. Friendly easy going staff.

Ventured back last week - the first time since a not so great experience early in the year. The service came with a smile, the coffee and delicious pastries delivered, as requested, at the same time.

This is a tiny place but Awesome Pizza. They are loaded with fillings, not the cheapest but your paying for the ingredients which they dont skimp on. All of us were impressed and will come again.

Great pizzas, coffee and service in this relaxed corner cafe. There is plenty of outside seating to sit in the sun and watch the world go by.
