Great wee place, it's small inside but loved it. Coffee was amazing. If we didn't live so far away we would be regular visitors.

If you like tiny quirky spaces you will definitely like this one. Lovely coffee and cake. Be aware of the walls as they are in places covered in chalk writing, one might get some on one's top

Thank you for the lovely review! Yes, the chalk is a bit of a pain, we tried to put guidelines where to write.... but I guess you cannot contain creativity! We hope the chalk came off easily!oops

Small place, but really interesting. I love their cappuccino, and cake rake is okay (a little sweet for me, but much better than other places I ate). Unique decor, and you can write anything on the wall!!! Highly recommend 👏🏻
