“Lovely, friendly coffee shop!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2013

The food is lovely, and the service is fast and friendly. Every time my friends and I visit, a long with pushchairs and noisy babies, the staff bend over backwards to fit us in. The give us toys to keep the children occupied, move tables etc etc, they are lovely. I have also been in plenty of times without children, and the service is just as good! It's only a small coffee shop, but I think that's why they are so caring a staff. And as an added bonus, they have a reward card! :)

“Nice up market cafe”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2012

This is a half cafe, half shop. You can browse gifts items, perfumes, furnishings and many other luxury goods downstairs and cards and furniture and traditional children’s toys upstairs. Once the drain of shopping sets in you can retire downstairs for a rejuvenating good tea or coffee or even a light snack. The food is straightforward and simply presented. They will encourage you to come back with a loyalty card which is stamped for purchases over £5. It is probably not a good place to take children, the furniture and food are geared up for the adult market. This is a good place to shop for birthday and Christmas presents.

The cafe is pleasant, not cheap, but reasonable value for drinks and pleasant simple food consisting of soups, sandwiches, cakes and ice cream.

“Baby presents or home galore”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2012 via mobile

Want something beautiful for a child or even your home? Well this place has got it. All unique gifts at fantastic prices which really are worth it for items which can last for donkeys years. Pretty beautiful sums it up perfectly I think.
