Lunch time and events on in durham meant it was very busy today, but as usual service was very friendly, staff were polite and bacon sandwich was again perfect. Got hot chocolate this time, with cream and marshmallows, tasted very creamy, very nice and this is definitely becoming my favourite place in durham city to stop for a quick bite... More

Popped in for a quick bite to eat, bacon sandwich, salted caramel cookie and drink of pop. Only my second time in here but both times the bacon has been cooked to perfection and on fresh soft bread buns, not the hard crusty bread they use most places. Perfect.

This coffee shop really is a mixed bag. I've always loved the hot chocolate but when the coffee shop is busy, it can be watery. The owners are usually friendly but are very preoccupied by who is using their toilet. I've seen people who have sat outside be questioned when they go inside as to whether they were a customer...

I did not enjoy my visit here, I came into the café with a cone of chips and I was very rudely approached and told to leave as chips were not permitted which is fine but I was unhappy the way I was informed. Also my friends and I even though paying for food were forced to leave after we... More

Decided to visit here with my friend. I ordered a cappuccino and my friend bought a bottle of water but she was yelled at by the manager for trying to use the toilet as she was apparently not a customer. After reading other reviews on here, it seems like other people have had similar experiences. And the way that the... More
