I am a believer that when I see a busy cafe it must be good. This was the case with this place. It was certainly busy but we were soon seated with our food and drinks. I had a large Cornish pastie with a cake...More

The expresso coffee, when it came, was perfectly acceptable and reasonably priced. But I was amazed to be told that they couldn't produce a cafe macchiato. Busy, quite comfortable, and well-located. Try to get a table with easy chairs.More

Excellent early-evening / mid-shopping large traditional pastie + coffee, £6.75. Lovely staff, clean tables. Complimentary newspaper rack. Perfect. (Superb underground GunWharf Quay car parking.)

This is not a fine dining restaurant so reviewers should adjust their critique accordingly. A very busy coffee shop/bakery and part of the chain which covers ( certainly to my knowledge) a number of locations in the south of the UK. We went past a...More
