Great cafe! Had lovely baguettes for lunch and couldnt resist having some cakes for dessert and they didnt dissappoint. Brilliant value for money too.

“First class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

Fresh cooked bread served with a bowl of home made wholesome chowder followed by a really well made cappuccino. Friendly welcome, efficient service all in the setting of an art gallery. Excellent value - doesn't get much better. Highly recommended.

“Give the Big Coffee chains a miss, Go to the Cove!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

This friendly and welcoming coffee shop is a real gem. The quality coffee they serve is excellent, the staff are always friendly and the food is fresh and tasty. I recommend the Brie and cranberry baguette which is delicious!
The homemade soup is also a good option served piping hot with lovely bread on the side.
A relaxing and unique venue with local artists work on who available for purchase, this is a little oasis in the Busy shopping area overlooking Castle square.

“delicious hearty soup! bread a real let down!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2014

Went on liv social offer. V friendly staff, relaxed quirky place! Spot on with soups, minestrone and chick chowder. Pet hate is foul processed bread. It was brown which i prefer, but homemade bread from any old cheap breadmaker wouldve been a real plus! Cappucino nice too. Def recommend this place, good to support local! Am def going back as got another voucher! Yummy xx joy
