Definitely worth a visit. Coffee that tastes like coffee! Friendly staff and a great view of Abbey Gate and cathedral tower. Extensive food menu all freshly prepared. Seating outside which is great when the sun is shining!!

They offer really rich and strong coffee here. Their lattes are delicious! Beware of the ristretto (in a good way) — it’s super strong (albeit yummy)! We prefer the outdoor seating on a nice day. Indoor seating has good spots but can get cramped.

Stopped off for a tea and bacon sarnie, and now can't wait to go back. Prompt service, lush bacon and well cooked poached eggs. What's not to like? Oh and Wi-Fi so was able to crack on with a bit of work too

Normally I have to forego the pleasures of cake and a cuppa, but here I was spoilt for choice. All the staff were attentive and chatty.

A good place for a coffee or tea and the breakfast was very good. Staff were friendly and if you get a window seat then you can watch the world go by.
