I absolutely love this cafe. Peaceful little cafe, hidden from all the noise and super friendly employees. New owner(?) So they did change a bit(if you're local) and a wool shop is there as well. If you're into knitting or crochet, this is a shop you should check out. Smoking rule changed as well, but they do have a table... More

Really cute coffee shop in a small garden, we were able to enjoy the last rays of sunshine in peace - you don't hear the traffic. Good cappuccinos, lattes etc. and cute decoration.

This little cafe is tucked away but a real treat to visit. Friendly staff and a delicious healthy menu. Prices are reasonable too! Goes get a little chilly but they have blankets on every chair to make your day cosy!

Went here for a light lunch today and had two lovely meals - chicken with honey wrap/ avocado/ feta salad and the other a spinach and bacon salad/ cashews/ dried toms/ orange etc. In a garden setting - recommend this place which has wi fi too.

I have to say this is a nice oasis when in town for a beverage & a snack. The service was really good & there was a nice choice on the menu. Unfortunately I cannot reccomend the Toasted chicken mayonnaise sandwich as mine was missing chicken & was more like a sandwich spread!!
