So it is winter and I needed warming up. I popped into this litt;e cafe and ordered the soup and a sandwich deal. The soup was delicious and the toasted sandwich also hit the mark.

We come in to Cafe Alba a lot mostly for the breakfast which is great, they also offer take away which is good for a hot roll in the morning. Staff are lovely too but seating is limited. It is nice to sit outside on a warm day too.
