Popped in for a quick lunch while in town. It's ok. For lunch only as they don't do a dinner service it seems. Glad to see a nice coffee shop run by an independent.

Probably the best cafe in Kettering at the moment. Great coffee, good choice of food including some very nice cakes. They also do a very good breakfast. Well worth a visit.
