We read the reviews, so decided to stop for coffee. The latte and Americano were made perfectly. We had the homemade chicken pate (the red onion marmalade was delicious) and beet salad with goat cheese for lunch. Both were outstanding. Ivan and Susan own the...More

This cafe seems out of the way but boy is the coffee fantastic. Best flat white I've had in England. Combine this with very friendly service and you have yourself a winner! Would highly recommend to anyone looking to get a fantastic coffee.
