What a lovely little place this is. The food is good, recommend the apricot and lentil soup.......more delicious than it sounds! The decor is fantastic and the staff friendly. Recommended with a visit to mining art gallery and new viewing tower just across the road.

Stumbled into cafe by chance. Needed a loo and asked for nearest coffee shop and was directed to it. Lots of odd bits of crockery and pictures etc all from days gone by. Familiarised containers and jugs that my mother had back in my childhood...More
