Lovely latte, properly made and lovely. Stopped here for lunch and had a pitta and salad with humus. Children had veggie burgers and loved them. Very tasty and filling. Will be back soon.

Over the years I have been in this Cafe many many times and it is time to do a review. I meet up with members of my family to have mid morning coffee when I am in the area. The coffee drinks are first class and the cakes look yummy. I just love the garden area out the back of... More
