The most amazing coffee, cakes, quiches and food in general. Have been a customer for years now and I can't get enough. Haven't had anything that wasn't absolutely delicious. It's the perfect place for a coffee with friends, to enjoy the sun outside or even...More

Good coffee and cinnamon bun to die for. Light dough. Not too sweet and a hint of cinnamon. Did not go into the garden today as it was too cold. Have done in the past and Quentin has provided blanjets and hot water bottles.

On a damp December day it hardly looked inviting. On entering, I heard the lively Charlie Parker, thankfully not too loud. I was trying to picture New York caked in snow and early Ella Fitzgerald numbers...The famous Ibrahim Ferrer and Omara Portuondo and the legendary...More

Visited for a coffee, quiche and cake, excellent as always, the chef is to be commended. To be good is difficult, to be consistent is hard so to be consistently good is impressive. Keep up the good work.
