I love this place. I was so glad I found it. It is small inside but the atmosphere and the food make it worthwhile. There is a garden outside that you can sit in which I can't wait to try when the weather is nicer....More

Excellent for Celiacs, Vegans and any other people with food allergies. Service is quite slow and the place is cramped are the only reasons it doesn't get 5 stars.

Had a fabulous Afternoon tea with my mum which was specially arranged with the help of Sue. Lovely food and presented beautifully. A little taste of nature at its best (without the smells of meat) Thank you

Tucked away on Hallgate just a stap away from the bus station it’s not your typical cafe. Various tastes and preferences catered for, with something for everyone regardless of your requirements. Dining area small but intimate, lots of specialist teas and coffees to help lubricate...More

During the day you can use car parks such as Tge Galleries or the Bus Station which are close. After 6.39 you can park on this street. It's always best to book for an evening visit. Regards, Sue
