Stopped off for coffee and cake. The coffee was very good as were the cakes and the friendly staff were very helpful. The outside seating is in the shopping centre and is spacious and light and airy.

This cafe has great looking food at the counter. However, the food is presented poorly and has very little taste. The side salad is one lettuce leaf. This cafe needs to up its game, it is overpriced for the quality of food.

Dear lizy228 thank you for the compliment regarding the display - we have noted your comments regarding your personal taste and apologise. The lettuce to which you refer is a garnish and not a side salad. Side salads are available . regards Karen

Whilst shopping in Fareham Mall thought we would have lunch here. Sandwiches overpriced on average bread, pretty tasteless actually. Drinks of hot chocolate lukewarm, clue is in the name, returned for heating up, not impressed. 2 sandwiches and 2 drinks £15+ Will not return.

My favourite coffee shop when shopping in town. There is lots of choice from the national brands, but this is a local with good, friendly service and also provides good lunchtime food.
