This cafe is located in Saint Mary's Guildhall. It doesn't open until 11am but is well worth waiting for. I called in for a pot of tea after visiting the Guildhall. It is a very atmospheric space which I really enjoyed and the service is very pleasant.

I think this place is absolutely stunning. Not many people know about it, so it rarely gets busy. The food is lovely and there is good choice and it is also reasonably priced.
