We just needed a coffee and popped into this one because there were people there already - a good sign. They had three sizes of coffee, plus an extra one called "bowl" for those who really need their caffeine intake. Large was fine for us. The cakes were amazing, I had a caramel brioche, my partner a Strawberry tart. I... More

Great selection of options for a light lunch, quick snack or full meal and very yummy which ever you decide to have. We often go here for lunch as a family and with friends and as a couple. Very relaxing place to have a coffee and catch up with friends.

Had a really nice breakfast here. Presentation was good, hot chocolate stayed hot which was great. Only reason not excellent is I don't like onions and didn't realise they would be with eggs benedict and salmon and spinach so just a heads up to let people know. Will certainly be back

Had had an enjoyable lunch with family and friends. There is a choice between cabinet food, and prepared to order.. I ordered from a previous menu that they no longer supported, and even though the dish I ordered was no longer on the current menu, they made it for me anyway. I was very pleased with this level of service... More

We visited this cafe after reading the good reviews. It was after 1.00 pm and although not busy the staff appeared disinterested. The burger was very average and tastless, the green curry in a chipped plate was okay and the berry smoothie good. However, the music drowned out any chance of conversation. Expensive for what it is. I will not... More
