As a student I enjoyed sitting on the sidewalk with a cup of coffee enjoying one of your student special meals. However rather pricey for the quality if not on a special. The furniture outside could be better. All in all, not a bad experience.

This is busy cafe on the main street in a busy town. We were seated straight away at our recent visit. The service was fine. The pizzas were good, thin bases. The wine list has enough choices. A good place for a quick meal.
