Two milkshakes came to over £8:00. Nice place and the milkshakes were nice, but too expensive. Good staff.

I enjoy going here. It is a great place to sit and read with a nice cup of coffee. The surroundings are lovely, it is part of an artistic work space. Unusual breakfasts are on offer, just that bit different.

Pleasant enough but thought that nearly £5 for a couple of slices of bread and 3/4 of a mug of soup was a bit expensive.

Creative. Award Winning. Fresh. Friendly. Local. Freshly Baked. Wifi. Cakes. Coffee. Tea. Breakfast. Lunch. Brunch. Opened in 2010 this is a large airy space where you can relax, reflect and rejuvenate. Tucked away at the back of Friar Gate Studios with a 'where on earth is it' style illusiveness, we are here to serve those in the know. The coffee is great and the service is smiley! Our ideal is to create a real feeling of community spirit, a focal point for Derby business folk and local creative's, a place to feel relaxed and a place you'll want to come back to whatever the time of day. We are open for breakfast, lunch and brunch to knock your socks off.
