Nice coffee house with seating downstairs as well. Staff is lovely, very friendly. They have soy milk for vegans/lactose intollerants. I ordered a cappuccino, which was barely warm. It tasted nice... but I expect my coffee to be piping hot!

I'm sure that the staff are very knowledgeable about all things coffee but what is more important to me is getting a decent cup of coffee after all the faffing about. Unfortunately I was unimpressed. It's all very trendy but I really don't need my...More
