Do they use organic milk in their coffee? I see mention of organic/sustainable offerings but no mention of organic milk which seems a bit odd.

The cafe is found up the steps on the lefthand side of the building and there is some outside space in summer, doors opening onto a terrace. Great value for money. Maggie
