I previously left a review praising the food but felt it was let down by bad coffee. The coffee situation has now definitely improved as the staff have clearly had new training. However, it still isn't as good as nearby alternatives.

It is usually difficult to get a good gluten free roll or sandwich but this Deli has lovely ciabatta style rolls so I had it filled with smoky bacon. It was delicious and finished off with a gluten free brownie and a cappucino with skimmed...More

We popped in for a snack and drink while we were shopping, and being new in town we didn't know where to go. My wife was suitably impressed as they had vegan brownies, my son also as he had a monster of a chocolate cup...More
