This little cafe was immediately pleasing to the eye. We were then delighted to find vegan options and the food was brilliant! We will defiantly be eating here again soon!

4 croissants, two ice teas and two pots of yogurt - £25!!! What planet are these guys on? The ice tea was weak and tepid. The yogurt was standard.. measly portion. Croissants dry. Seating is awkward and annoying. AVOID.

Nice spot, away from busy centre. Relaxed atmosphere and lovely sandwiches. Can imagine it can get busy at peak times as not a big place.

Went in for a coffee and to relax reading my book. Quick, high quality service. The guy serving me was a tad moody but hey, it didn't bother me too much. Nice pleasant music in the background too.
