“Lovely little cafe”
Reviewed 5 February 2014 via mobile

This is a lovely little cafe in a good location, just slightly up from castle square and opposite cosmos. I only discovered this place after purchasing a Livingsocial deal and I was really impressed.

The deal was for soup and a bread roll and a hot drink. The soup we tried (parsnip and chilli) was amazing! Really fresh, thick and tasty. We also had hot chocolate which was one of the nicest hot chocolates I've ever had. I'll certainly be going here again. Really funky decor, lovely staff and reasonably priced lovely food. What more could you want?

“Cosy, Comfortable and Welcoming”
Reviewed 3 February 2014 via mobile

Warm cosy atmosphere, good coffee and comforting home cooked baguettes. A real gem for a quick snack or simple lunchtime comfort food, lovely place to eat or sit and watch the world go by.

“Fantastic food and service”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

Visited with my mother after a morning of shopping to have a beautifully made baguette with a variety of fillings available... I had brie, cranbery and bacon which was amazing, and a pot of tea. Lovely and quiet and received service and food very quick! Will deffinatley be returning soon!

“Ticks all the boxes”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

This place is great.

it very simply ticks all the right boxes, good service, good prices and good food...

staff are very friendly and very accommodating, nothing seems to be a stretch too far.

I would recommend the steak baguette, simple but very nice and didn't take too long to arrive. seating is very comfortable and plenty of it with plenty of room for your laptop.

The coffee is fantastic, it tastes great and you can clearly see that the owner has a passion for it.

lunch with a drink will cost around £5 so a bargain for good food and good service.

I would like to add that some of the local art is quite distasteful and some of the displays look a little messy...

“Lunchtime treat”
Reviewed 31 August 2013 via mobile

I go here regularly as a lunchtime treat. Excellent, friendly service with a nice atmosphere. They do nice cawl (welsh soup) and sandwiches. Free Wifi and art work from local artists. The only thing I'd like them to do is to provide a larger choice of foods.
