This was our second visit to this wonderful little cafe and this time it was just for coffee and cake. The selection was great and the scones and cakes were absolutely delicious. We love the decor and the service was first class.

This is my favourite cafe in the world. Whenever we're in town we make our way there for a top breakfast, pretty much at any time of the day - so it suits the late-risers after a heavy night out - or for coffee and...More
