Perfect place to relax and catch up on some uni work, great food and coffee and a complete sun spot.

As this is round the corner I am ashamed to admit that until recently my wife and I had not been in here much. Now we have been four times in the last month. The pizzas and doorstop sandwiches in particular are amazing. The cake is pretty outstanding too! And the staff were very accommodating of our massive buggy too!

Cosy place, nice music, tasty dishes. Nice to relax there and have a coffee or tea, together with something to eat (sweet or not, like pies). At evenings you can choose from a variety of wines or beers. From the same shop you can buy wines or some delicatessen.

I've been staying in Surbiton for the last week and found this delightful little place in town. A mixture of tables and sofas meant that it had a dining room/living room feel to it. The pizza was superb and I highly recommend the Olive Oyl pizza, although I was tempted by "Trumps Mate" pizza (Mexican).

Still the best place to chill in Surbiton, I respectfully cannot agree with the comments from John M about customers dogs interfering with the service. Yes the staff do make a fuss of the dogs but not at the expense of serving the customers. Crystal (the manager) would be horrified to read this as providing a good service is her... More

We used to visit this establishment frequently, appreciating it's spaciousness, relaxed atmosphere and quirky fit out. But the minuses have slowed our return, including the slightly pricey food and the staff being too friendly with guests' dogs, taking their eye off prompt service.

Lovely cosy coffee shop. Bit pricey but worth it for the atmosphere. Staff are friendly ( and funny!) and make you feel at home. A rare service you get elsewhere in surbiton.

I really like this place. Unlike a number of other Surbiton coffee shops, this place has plenty of space for prams and both the sweet and savoury options are delicious if not a little pricey. However, the staff are the most unfriendly of all the places in Surbiton. I have been in several times and not once have I felt... More
