This building used to be know as the "Vestry", as it was an old church in the hospital grounds. Now with most of the former psychiatric patients gone and living in community settings outside the hospital the church became a coffee shop and restaurant.
It still has some of the trappings of its former life. Next door is a gym area or hall for various activities including "slimming world" or similar. I wondered about the wisdom of that, beside all the delicious food and all.
The food is only divine as it should be in a church, what lovely smells greet you on entering the coffee shop. You are met by angels who work there and smile all the time. If you are having coffee, ask for an Americano otherwise you will get "perky", coffee which is not to my liking. They do a lovely "Irish Breakfast" here and it is very filling. You can order food to go as well and they cater for functions outside of the restaurant as well. All the food is cooked or baked in-house so you know it is fresh.
When you finish you can enjoy a nice walk in the park next door. Parking is metered but not too expensive and there is further parking in the front of the park entrance.

Good home cooked food with a bit of spice and a tip of the hat to healthy eating. Good service, very friendly, with free wifi in nice old building.

Great food, good value, nice people. We had breakfasts and they were gorgeous. It's in an old church and is full of character too.

I've eaten here a few times and it's always a pleasure to return. The menu is always varied, and the bread (and cakes!) are wonderful. Staff are especially nice and friendly here. Highly recommended!!!
