“Best flat white I've ever had. Ever. ”

I am writing this review because I was so impressed with this cafe. The coffee was delicious & the Lumber Jill breakfast hit the spot. Very impressed.

“1st and last visit”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

Overrated and overpriced, really don't get what everyone raves about, the place and some of the staff need a good clean..£20 + for two very mediocre breakfasts? 1st and last visit.

“My favourite Bournemouth coffee shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

This place is lovely with shabby chic furnishings, outside space, great coffee, friendly staff, and always extremely relaxing. If you want great coffee and some sweet things (and savoury!) try this place out

Just went for a coffee but was so pleasantly surprised to actually find somewhere that did a decent job at making coffee in a cool place. Would highly recommend

“Not everyones cup of tea - funky food and staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

The place tries really hard to be "alternative" without being totally veggie - the staff and majority of the clientele seem to be trying to be different from the normal people but end up just looking all alike. The place has really nice food, even if the menu is pretty limited and the distressed warehouse look of the building works with the recycled furniture. The food portions are pretty large and I can recommend the vegetarian breakfast with grilled haloumi (actually the east end breakfast with extra black pudding is more my style). Do not go there unless really hungry or you will be leaving half the food!
