Stopped for a lovely panini and coffee. Very reasonably priced and was able to eat in a small little court yard.

Really well-prepared food and drinks available in the heart of the city, with friendly service. Extremely keenly priced, and definitely a significant 'cut' above the quality available from the more traditional sandwich chains locally. Highly recommended for a good lunch.

Great place to stop for lunch close to the bus station. I had a salad which was delicious and reasonably priced. There were also some fab looking cakes. It's a lovely peaceful spot too.
