It's a nice small cafe with character, loved the quirky interior. Coffee is great, so are the cakes with gluten-free and vegan options. Good breakfast selection from what I've seen (althought haven't tried it yet). One of the best independent coffee houses in the area.

Always a pleasure to visit! The staff are always very friendly and provide great service - always with a smile on their face. Definitely the most friendly cafe in Southampton, so worth a visit based off that alone!
