We have passed this place many many times and have not gone in. The reason being the exterior decoration. I think the premises looks more like a shop than an awesome diner. Anyway my wife wanted a take away coffee so used this place. Once you step in the door, the choice of food, snacks, cakes etc is impressive as... More

Dropped in to have a quick coffee and a scone. The Scone (blueberry) with clotted cream was absolutely top notch. They serve them cold, but if you ask (recommended) they will warm it up for you. The service was lovely, the people very friendly, and the interior is very bright and comfortable.

Good value. Fair choice. Delicious homemade café fare. Yummy cakes. Decent coffee. Friendly staff. North facing, so not very sunny.

I got this account for a bit of vegan lobbying in outstanding situations but just want to say that northpoint is GREAT, all round. Fun café, lovely people who work here, great vegan options and prices that mean you don't have to be a prince to go there! Down to earth and loving it!

Was a lovely lunch with a broad range of brunch and classic lunch foods available. Would be perfect if they could improve the bright orange scrambled eggs.
