Very nice coffee served in a unique atmosphere and surroundings. Always ask for coffee to be extra hot as it is another one where they normally only serve it warm. Will certainly go here again.

Love coming here, I had the bacon, Brie and onion chutney panini, very tasty. Side salad was lovely and fresh. Decent cup of tea too. Will be back again soon, one of Bedford’s little gems 😊😊

Always prefer to use an independent coffee shop and I wasn’t disappointed by the flat white. Happy buzz from a busy coffee shop - a good find and happy to recommend

We love it here! Reasonably priced, always busy and consistent quality. Service is often a bit slow but it’s always worth the wait. Much prefer to the chain coffee shops on the high street.
