My daughter and I often call for coffee and a chocolate. Always excellent and always pretty full. Speaks for itself!

Dirty tables, staff not bothered and the coffee tasted like dirty water. Avoid at all costs and go to Costa or Starbucks.

Good coffee, as good as or better than Costa with no queue and it seemed like a lower price. Cake was OK. Noisy at the back with the obligatory espresso machine but also a noisy chilled cabinet, music I did not find soothing and the sound of cleaning (with over an hour to go to the declared closing time). A consistenly average ground floor port of call.

The coffee is ok and the service is mediocre but the smell as you enter is very unpleasant. I attend every Thursday with a group of freinds and the smell is always there. I have even contacted Thorntons but they failed to reply. In the cafe they say that it is the drains but surely something can be done to stop the smell. After all they do have food sitting on the counter, it is very off putting.

Overall, this is a nice cafe. The free chocolate is a lovely touch, and the staff are usually pretty friendly. The real problem is that there is sometimes a strange drainy smell that is quite off putting!
