Popped in here on a recent shopping trip to Chester. The place was buzzing and a great atmosphere. Coffee was served efficiently and the quality was top notch. Both my espresso and my wife's americano were excellent with a rich and well rounded flavour and no hint of bitterness. This is a conveniently placed cafe that is expertly run. I... More

Warm welcome with our 18month old baby. Both had 'dirty chai latte's' as a treat (basically chai latte with espresso shot added in. Great cake slice too - full of fruit and nuts / seeds excellent icing but can't remember what it was called!!! Very good visit, friendly and well run, will be back. Avoid your commoner garden chain coffees... More

After four hours of shopping, we were in need of refreshment, we had a nice coffee, my wife had an OK cold scone, good rodda's cream and jam. I had a roast beef and onion panini which was dry and tasteless. The atmosphere was great and the staff friendly, however the food was disappointing. We would look elsewhere when in... More

Went here twice during our weekend in Chester. Firstly they can serve coffee hot (chains etc please take note) what a nice change. We had paninis which were both interesting and very tasty. Very spoilt for choice on the cakes but all agreed in our group that the ones we had were delicious. Plenty of other choices and would gladly... More

My partner and I are always on the look out for a quirky/different coffee shop or cafe, rather than go to your standard Costa/Starbucks etc. This was in a great location, great staff and a good break from all the shopping. Their smoothies were delicious and great range of things to eat. When visiting Chester, I would definitely come back/recommend.
