The guy running this place is so sound - I once popped in for a coffee on my way to work and completely forgot my wallet. I didn't realise until after I had ordered! What an idiot. However the guy running the shop (long hair...More

Popped in for a take away cup of tea. £2 for a double espresso cup size!. When I complained I was told "yes we are expensive and that's the cup size". How much is some extra hot water? Almost nothing. Compared with Nero up the...More
