I have been to this great establishment many times and will keep going back. The coffee tastes amazing and the food is full of flavour. Jazz music is often being played which creates a very tranquil atmosphere- a great place to sit and do some work or just relax. Everything is prepared fresh so when it's busy there can be... More

A little hidden gem offering excellent quality food and really nice coffee, together with a great range of soft drinks. Staff were friendly and the service fine - just rather slow. We visited on a Friday lunchtime and although busy, it wasn't packed. Despite this, it took over 40 minutes to get two sandwiches. In fairness all the food is... More

My wife and I enjoyed lunch and a coffee here. We walked past frequently but decided to give it a go today.

Still, his service and quality and food was... More

Stopped in for lunch and ordered a halloumi open-faced sandwich. It comes with some sides (hummus, stuffed grape leaves, olives) that made it more like a platter. The halloumi was grilled perfectly, the bread was absolutely delicious, it was a great meal. They were starting to make the bread for the next day while I was there. Great place, worth... More

Really nice quality food, friendly service and a nice oasis from the busier town centre. Have been recommending it to everyone. I look forward to going back again.

We called here for lunch last Saturday whilst waiting to check in at the nearby Premier Inn. We had a sharing platter for 2 people and it was gorgeous. Everything was fresh and tasty and we really enjoyed it.

I recently visited this lovely place and had the grilled halloumi sandwich. I think this is the best sandwich I have ever tasted. It was fantastic; looking forward to trying the rest of the menu.

Thank Gillian C
