Popped in before work for a coffee. It was 0745 but they didn't open until 0800. That didn't stop the staff serving me. They said they didn't mind serving me a quick take away because they had the door open anyway due to the warmth....More

Bit pricey but coffee good. Croissants warmed for us but dry. Excellent warm bagel with smoked salmon and cheese.

Lovely cup of coffee, Bacon sandwich though, was on cheap white sliced bread, which was buttered? Also bacon could have been cooked more, a little fatty, the cheap bread would have been acceptable if the bacon was crispy and the bread had not been buttered,...More

Save up to 30% on our daily deals. All deals are served with our finest, authentic, Italian, dark roast coffee.

Here at Cinderbox we don’t do tiny, our coffee cups can attest to this.

New this summer we have Gelato, Cinder Shakes, Frappes and Smoothies.

We have an outdoor sitting area, looking out onto Bridge Street, which is a popular spot to sit and eat our gelato, sip on our new shakes and relax.
