The restaurant is well presented in terms of decor and lay-out. Had one of the tastiest slices of Gluten Free cake that I have ever tasted and the coffee was pleasing. The lady who served was courteous and friendly. All in all a good experience.

Nice place to do a little shopping. Pleasant staff and happy to help if you can't find something. Love the coffee. Nice little cafe down stairs but a little expensive.
