Lucky to stop here and listen through window to street jazz. Had millionaire shortbread, well worth the calories! Sat on leather sofa by window upstairs. Cosy and decorated with coffee bean sacks and quirky bits. Staff were polite and focused on customers. Good coffee too....More

An independent quirky coffee shop. Specializing in Coffee and Cakes.. It is also dog friendly. We have outside seating situated in the market square for those warm sunny days.. We also have upstairs seating with large comfy sofas perfect for those cold winter days.. We have a 4 tier chocolate fountain perfect for a little treat or even to keep the kids occupied while you sit back and relax with a perfect cup of coffee... Need we say more!!
