Description
Voted Wiltshire cafe of the year 2017 A coffee shop, for 30 covers, with extra seating outside on the pavement in good weather. Our divine coffee is beautifully made by baristas (the owners) who care. Our hot chocolate is incredible - dark, white, chili, or extreme chili? Fabulous sandwiches and home made cakes, baked potatoes and paninis, home made soup or a decadent Eggs Benedict. Watch the world go by, whilst enjoying our hospitality, in air conditioned splendour.
