A very good local café. About a 10/15 minute walk from the railway/bus station, up a fairly steep hill; but it's a pleasant walk and the café is a good stop off point if you're visiting Alexandra Park with it's wonderful view over the city. Specialises in offering locally grown produce, and serves breakfast, lunch (I can recommend the stilton/cranberry sandwich), and good cakes. The Bear Pad also exhibits the work of local artists/craftspeople, has WiFi connection, and it's opposite the wonderful Rolfey's, affordable antique shop, which is always good for a browse.
