Eclectic cafe on the Steep Hill in Lincoln. Had a nice coffee and chicken salad sandwich on arrival in Lincoln. Good atmosphere and the shelves of books dotted around are a winner.

very quirky & welcoming, great for a stop off after climbing that very steep hill. Speciality coffees & teas & delicious sandwiches. Variety of books to read while relaxing. Very dry sense of humour.
