Visited with daughter and grandson. Food was nice, hot, served quickly and with a smile. A wee bit pricey though.

Been here twice this week. Both times, it was incredibly busy; but the staff are always friendly & smiling and take a moment to speak to you as a human being, not just another customer. Splendid coffee, with wide selection of lovely cakes. Highly recommended.
