Popped in today for a bacon roll and a coffee. Lovely interior, friendly service and a really good bacon roll. Lovely selection of tempting cakes displayed on the counter. Will try them another time. Coffee & bacon roll under 5 pounds so fairly reasonably priced....More

Visited this cafe to be confronted with an angry waitress. Greasy breakfast and under extracted coffee (weak), probably the worst latte I've ever tasted. Over heard conversation as waitress was bragging about reviewing every cafe in the surrounding area 1 star on google and TripAdvisor....More

Shabby chic is the style here and it works just fine. The food is good and appears to be an attempt at home/local made with vegetarian and healthy options. We visited for breakfast and the menu was well suited for that (shame the pancakes were...More

What a delightful little gem of a café, lovely atmosphere, classy and original decor, food is excellent (brilliant breakfast, the best panini around, very generous portions of jacket potatoes and salads, top quality ingredients). Highly recommended.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.

crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
