While a little pricier than places around it, the staff and atmosphere are fantastic. The coffee and tea are also lovely with a great selection.

Society cafe has the most amazing 'real' hot chocolate! They do however charge 30p extra for soy which I feel is unfair on those who cannot have cows milk, even if it is a 'fancy Japanese brand'.

I enjoy using cafes as study centres, let's be honest - it's super difficult to study at home and actually concentrate on what you really want to do. It's always good to go to a place where like-minded people enjoy doing their work. Society Cafe...More
