Been here a couple of times, the coffee is great, the cakes are great, but the man serving could certainly cheer up a little. Worth a visit.

I visited after having heard great rumours for 4 years... I finally made the trip and was disappointed by the coffee! The venue is great and very cosy and unique, however I was expecting beautiful latte artistry and quality coffee given that Flat Caps Joe...More

Fancied a change from my usual coffee place. Googled it, read the reviews, decided to pop in to see if I like it, intending to possibly return at a later date. Rather hard to find, the place looked okay, a sort of "not my type"...More

Great atmosphere really chilled out place to come for a chat and a coffee. Coffee was very taste and it had nice latte art on it as well. ❤️
