Firstly, I’ll start out by saying that I was a little sceptical after some of the reviews I’d seen on here but most of them were good so I still walked through the door with high hopes! I have to say, I was not disappointed....More

Tea came for us to make! Coffee was horrific. Asked for a espresso to see if they could pull a shot, and it tasted like bitter weak bean juice. No crema at all?! Madness. Panini was uninspiring. Bang some pesto on surely.More
