Not the best cafe in the world but certainly not the worst. The cooked breakfast is ok but the brown sauce is the worst. It's like really vinegary water and not pleasant. The fresh made coffee is good though and reasonably priced.

My chap and I were in town and fancied a quick lunch.. We popped in here and it was great. Had a nice varied menu, though as a vegetarian, there could have been a bit more choice, but the food was lovely and the service was good and not too expensive. It was a clean, fresh space and would return.

Smallish cafe on the butter market. Few seats outside which is nice on a warm day. I ordered the full English breakfast which came with 2 slices of toast. With coffee it came to £7.50. Service was quick. The food itself was decent enough and made for a good start to the day.

Had the most lovely beans on toast, with mug of decaf ☕. It was tasty and hot. Good service and as it was a cold day, lovely to be in the warm

Very good cafe style comfort food. Excellent coffee and service. Very busy and quite noisy so not the place to go for a quiet meeting

It might have improved, but it's still a bit of a greasy spoon cafe. Not very sophisticated and average price. Good for a cuppa if you are visiting the bank or the market, but not to be recommended for much else, I'm afraid.
