Was a bit wary when I saw a man carrying a cat box into the kitchen from the car park, but had no idea just what was in store. Average coffee and food, it's the customer service that lets this place down. My wife ordered...More

A popular place for coffee. On the main road with a seating area outside near the road, although still pleasant. Not my type of place since the music is loud and is way ahead of my generation.

Zen was a complete surprise, cos we weren't expecting such fabulously delicious food. The service was exemplary and although a little noisy (acoustics of the rooms), it was a good place for lunch. We has excellent vegetarian choices and will definitely go there again.
