I love this place! Having only recently moved from a depot near by this attractive looking cafe is a wonderful addition to Macc. As with anything new I think there were a few teething problems, but not surprisingly with how busy it's been! Every time I've been it's been busy & on some occasions the queue was so big I've given it a miss. The pastries here are absolutely delicious! It makes you realise how naff supermarket pastries are! I urge everyone to to give this place a try & I can't wait to try some more goodies! :)

Small cafe area situated in bakery just off the market square.
Nice friendly staff and a good snack menu if a little expensive.
The tables are small and the chairs look like they came from a 1960's hospital waiting room, not at all comfortable. The bench seat alone one wall have padded seats but backs, again not comfortable. A row of high stools with a shelf along the window might suit some people but again they are not comfortable and have little room.
The coffee for some reason is bitter and by far the worst of any of the half dozen or so in the town centre.
In summary a great place to buy bread etc, but go elsewhere for a good coffee in comfort.

I've had two soups at Flour Water Salt since they opened their new premises and both bowls were fantastic, vegetarian, fresh and well flavoured with freshly baked bread accompaniments. The first was puy lentil and butternut with coconut milk and chili, the second a Moroccan spiced extravaganza with chickpeas. The coffee is great, the service friendly and although it's always busy, there is usually a seat in the window if not at a table. If you just want pastries, there are plenty of those on offer too to go with your drink. They do breakfasts. The feel is rustic but modern and the small eating area is bright and airy.
