There's an excellent choice on the menu with different types of drinks and food. I've been both to have in and takeaway. I had dirty chai which was delicious but with two shots the coffee wasn't very strong but I personally didn't mind too much.

Stopped by on a reccomendation. Small, cute shop, amazing smell to the cakes, and the flat white was smooth, tasty and very well made. Good music choice at a sensible volume too. Worth a stop!

a really pettite cafe in the heart of town. If you are lucky enough to find a seat make sure you try one of the handmade deserts apart from your coffee!!! Loved it and definitely going back

Me and my partner are regulars at this superb coffee shop. Altogether our favourite place in Bournemouth. Great atmosphere, decorated beautifully, amazing coffee and toasties and very friendly staff. And they play good music too.

Quirky, friendly and excellent coffee!! We went back the following day as it was so good. Worth a little walk to try.

Small, central place. Really good coffee with friendly, efficient service. Much better quality than the franchise across the street but sadly not as busy.
