Coffee is okay. Cakes are okay. Staff are okay. It just isn't that interesting. Bland and not stylish. Quite expensive. Cooler places for a coffee elsewhere. Wouldn't be fussed about going again.

Had lunch here. We arrived and didn't know if it was table service or you had to order at the counter. The service wasn't great a bit slow; seemed like there wasn't enough staff on. The food was okay.

So sorry to say this but I just don't want to go back again after my recent visits. A refurb was much needed but it has had a negative effect in that it no longer has the same feel at all. The staff have been...More

When we arrived I wasn't quite sure if we should find our own table or if someone would seat us. No one came forward so we just found our own table. Ordered avocado & toast and my friend had the granola, yogurt and fresh fruit....More
