I just moved to the area and have quickly become a regular for my morning coffee, which is always fantastic and served with a friendly smile. I normally try to spread my custom between different local places, but these guys are making it hard to...More

Thanks very much for the review. I'm glad you liked the food; we're going to be serving a weekend brunch starting next week so hopefully we'll see you there!

Used to be a great coffee house but since being refurbished the seating layout is squashed & cluttered ,the choice of food & cakes is now very limited and the quality poor. An open tray of pastries on the counter by the till very unhygienic!More
