I've passed this delicatessen/café on foot and on bicycle several times, and this morning had morning coffee with panettone -- both excellent. A lovely clean shop: modern but discreet, and with a friendly proprietor and staff. Things on the breakfast and lunch menu — and...More

Visited Lymington on market day and decided to pop in for a coffee, we found a table but it soon got busy and very cramped. Would like to go back when it is less busy.

We got here early this evening and it was empty so we very nearly didn't go in. That would have been a big mistake. I think this place is cafe by day, restaurant by night and it's fairly small - which translates to fairly cosy...More
