Miss Ariana 93 It was delight to serve you, although, you were not our most outstanding customer that day. Next time you’re in, I’ll show you some fire juggling and maybe you can show us a card trick or something. Until then, sweet dreams

We're just a little family run local cafe We're only small, but if you don't mind sharing a table, there's room for everyone We don't have table service and we don't have paper menus. (our menus are written up on the wall and they change regularly) The kitchen closes at 3pm, but you can still get coffee and cake after this time We are not part of a chain, there is no CEO creaming off the profits. We are just a little cafe doing our best, with the best ingredients we can get our hands on Guardian Top 50 Breakfasts UK 2017 The Times Top 25 2016 Buzzfeed Top 17 Things to Eat Before You Die Good Food Guide 2017 Hardens 2017 “It’s a bit of a squash, but once you’ve got in, you’ll get some excellently prepared local stuff” Now, lower your expectations and come on down!
