Had coffee here. Good coffee , efficient service, good price. Not much else to say just pick up your coffee and wander into the sun to enjoy. Some pastries available for those with a sweet tooth.

I've been here a few times now and they always deliver good coffee. The staff are a good bunch and they appear to be real lovers of coffee and what they do.
