What a lovey cafe, setting and food. However will not return as the customer service was incredibly rude. A simple request by a customer to find out if the cafe accepted Apple Pay before I ordered was replied to with a lack of courtesy, manners...More

I love this quirky little coffee shop and we are regular customers. It's situation is to die for on the Quays by the water. When the sun shines, you could be just about anywhere in the world. When it rains, there is knitting, good music...More

Marco serves the best coffee in town, hands down - the location is amazing and the cake slices are huge. I have discovered a good place to get some work done, meet local people and chat. It's worth the walk just to be in the...More

Cosy inside with couches etc. Don't wait to served, you order from the counter. Devon cream tea with scones and clotted cream was great - scones were large and fluffy. Highly recommend it!
