I may have reviewed this cafe on an incorrect tripadvisor link. There is a lovely cafe on the bottom floor. The staff was cheery and attentive. The food was tasty and the price was right. Tea and cakes if you are so inclined, or soup...More

Rather full when we first arrived at 12.00 so did our exploring of the bookshop first and then got a table. We both had a delicious pea and wasabi soup with crusty bread. The wasabi added a distinctive flavour without being hot or overpowering.
