Good value and nice coffee. Cake was OK, although its shame more menu options weren't available on the day. Excellent service.

Visited this cafe on a very cold and wet Saturday afternoon. Walked into a lovely warm, cozy and welcoming space. After some considerable deliberation over what cake we would try as they was so much choice we had some homemade victoria sponge which was to die for and a lovely hot mug of hot chocolate. Staff friendly will definately go... More

Originally wanted to try here for lunch but they do not welcome buggies... Ok then! Off to find somewhere else as I refused to leave my buggy in the rain on the street. I understand it's a small setting but there was adequate room for a small stroller. So stopped in later for a take away coffee and cake. Was... More

Stopped at Spill the Beans Cafe with my partner on a cold day looking for some soup to warm us up. We were met by an abrupt waitress who explained that they had ran out of the soup of the day, and instead we settled for an alternative. We were shocked to find that tap water was not available and... More

We had a wee family stop for a family coffee. The food was good but a bit pricey. I thought that the bacon toastie would have been a bit more special and the size of coffees were small for the price.

This delightful cafe is tucked away in the road that leads to the historic cathedral. The cakes are deliciously superb and the rest of the cafe style menu is interesting and good. Service is personal and friendly. Most enjoyable. And all seems fresh.

Popped in here as we were visiting next door. Friendly staff but very expensive cakes!! Although they were home made and there was a good variety, nearly £4 for an averaged sized cake is too expensive. Overall my visit was ok, but the price puts me off coming back. :)

This is a busy little place up the lane, coffee shop with the usual baking and sandwiches, fairly pricey for a small place but staff were friendly

Wooden tables with cast iron bases' painted chairs and a warm welcome.We pride ourselves in making great tea and coffee with all our staff being trained in how to make the perfect froth to grace the best triple scored coffee. Tea has been chosen to compliment the local water conditions.A fantastic selection of cakes, from light crisp and chewy meringues to light Victoria Sponges to Macaroons and Apple Pies with pastry to die for.... all made in our small but busy kitchen.We invite walkers in and if your best friend is a dog bring them too ...we have an outdoor area which is smoke free so at last we can sit outside and be able to assured that the table next to you will not be smoking. Closed on Tuesdays. Though we will be open throughout the year.
