The Source was bustling on Tuesday when we called in for coffee mid-morning. This not-for-profit cafe serves delicious coffee and has an extensive, well-priced menu. We hope to return to sample the food as it looked great.

Dropped in here a couple of times for coffee, which is good. No panic to move on after finishing, friendly staff and good lunches to be had.
