Relaxed atmosphere, friendly and professional service, tasty food and great tea and coffee. Light and airy too, unlike many of the chains. Have visited a few times and will continue to do so.

Nice atmosphere, lovely food and friendly staff. I went on my own the first time and was made to feel very welcome and comfortable. The second time was with a small group and we were still met with welcoming staff and nice food. Will return.

Quite pricey for what you get and with many other friendly and well priced cafés in the area, we probably won't return. Soup ok, sandwiches ok.
