I am not sure why this cafe is so busy. The food and environment are okay, but the food is a little overpriced and some younger staff are almost rude. Excellent wifi.

This café is in a great city centre location with indoor and outdoor dining, the outdoor area is plagued with seagulls that inhabit the centre of the city. There is a great choice of fillings in the various pasties on offer.
