If you are after an average coffee in an average place....this is not for you! James is passionate about what he does making the simple act of buying a hot drink a pleasure and a learning experience. A cracking little shop full of atmosphere.

The coffee is easily the best I've had anywhere in the North East. Loads to choose from and an expert barista to help you pick one. And the food is really good too, though the selection is limited but when it all tastes great how...More
