Been coming here for a while now. By far the best cafe in Portsmouth (maybe the whole country). The staff are great, the cakes amazing and the drinks are fab. A must visit for people trying to relax on the weekend!

I thought I’d go for a quiet Saturday morning coffee after a busy week- no chance! Queen and a variety of disco hits blaring - playlist really didn’t match the venue and became very annoying it was so loud. Tried to listen to an online...More

Good cafe to come to for breakfast and a coffee, nice and clean with friendly staff. A bit of the beaten track but well worth seeking out.
