This is a chain rip off, for which there is no crime. Squint your eyes and you could be in a Costa, which was obviously the idea.
Have been loads of times, and the coffee itself is fine. Like a lot of these places, the food is priced crazily. Maybe it is just me, but the best part of two pounds for a slice of cake is ludicrous.
The view from the city square is okay, although the slabs outside could do with some water jet cleaning and the trees in boxes need attention.
My main concern inside is that it resembles the black hole of Calcutta, such is the lack of light in sections.
WiFi is fine, and the tables can be close but are passable.
Staff are good in here, and always friendly. However, they don't set the exorbitant food prices!

Popped into Henry's Coffee House near Caird Hall for coffee and scone just after 8am. It opens at 7am during the week, it shuts around at 8pm. Open 7 days a week. Great coffee and cakes. Lovely atmosphere and a good place to sit by the window and watch the world go by.
Very friendly and helpful helpful staff. Seating outside too.

I love independent coffee houses and this is one of the best. The coffee was great and the service was excellent. There is plenty of seating and you can relax for as long as you want over your coffee and a paper - much better than any of the chains.
