A simple yet pleasant place to have lunch. We had their poached chicken and vegetable soup, which was very nice. No overpowering music, nice baristas with welcoming smiles.

When I ordered 2 coffees, on arrival, I was told there was a 15 minute wait. Not sure why, as not full. A fairly tasteless toasted cheese sandwich and no cutlery delivered with the food or coffee, I had to go and search for it....More
