My friend and I enjoyed the margherita and tuna pizzas which had a thin and light crust. We also had a salmon ciabbata that we shared between the two of us and found it very good. The bread was very tasty.

This was the second stop on our pub crawl, but no alcohol sold here, but we needed to get some lining on the stomach. This is a small smart looking cafe and it was busy and we were lucky that there was one table available....More

I'd suggest if 12 people all want to enjoy coffee and cakes together you contact the Little Cafe now to check if booking is possible? It's not huge and you'd probably use 50% of the tables available in one sitting.
