We were lucky enough to stumble upon this place whilst on a weekend visit to Shrewsbury. Even luckier that a couple was vacating a table as we arrived as it was otherwise very busy and we would have had to wait for a table. We both had cappuccinos and sourdough topped with avocado, lime and chilli. We chose to add... More

Came here for breakfast on a Saturday morning and was pleased to find that we had arrived early enough for it to be fairly quiet. I had the full English on sourdough and my wife had the porridge. Both were excellent, and it was nice to see a focus on presentation for something as simple as a breakfast. Service was... More

This place is always buzzing with people. The coffee is good and generous sizes and the homemade sandwiches are very good and freshly made, as are the cakes. Service is always good as well with full table service in operation. You get seated and served quickly considering how busy it always is. It's a great place to watch the hustle... More

We ordered falafel....deliciously served in pita bread with fresh rocket leaves,grilled pineapple and sweet chilli, "thanks chef" ( I've had disappointing falafel in... More

Our first visit and we didn't know what to expect, but what we didn't expect to find was such a great restaurant tucked away in the marketplace. The menu isn't large but it offered a good variety, especially if you are looking for a vegetarian option. With a vegan cook in the kitchen this shouldn't be a surprise. The food... More
