We decided to go and have a little morning treat after swimming. This is one of the original quaint coffee shops within Douglas, with a welcoming environment with fresh home made produce. We enjoyed a tasty coffee, fresh quiche and croissants and Caramac cake! Yum yum, a must visit place.

I was recommended to try the coffee and not disappointed. A superb double espresso. I had a slice (generous) of sticky ginger cake and it was delightful. Moist, fresh and full of ginger flavour. I'll make a special trip back for the cake. Hope the review is helpful.

The manager and staff are indeed lovely people who helped us appreciate the people of the isle of man. We have told everyone who visit Douglas, to stop in have time out and a coffee

You have to try the cakes here, they are huge and amazing! Everything is fresh that day and the sandwiches and wraps are lovely too. A large coffee/hot chocolate is served in a fish bowl, massive!

The coffee that they serve is far better than any of the other national brands available in Douglas. They have a wide range of delicious cakes too.

We found this place by chance. But how lucky we were to find it. The coffee is fantastic both in quality and flavour and size if you order a large one. They have the biggest cups l have ever seen! The cakes are home cooked and excellent. This must be the best coffee shop on the island. Don't miss a... More

My go-to place for coffee with friends, coffee is always served with a smile and the cakes (made on site) are rarely avoidable. Sofa's downstairs mean you can relax over a coffee anytime.

I love Spill the Beans, the cakes are amazing and BIG!! We've had lunch there a few times now and the sandwiches and wraps are lovely. The large coffee comes in the equivalent of a soup bowl! Perfect for a lazy Saturday afternoon catch up with the girls!
