The location is opposite John Lewis, alongside St Mary’s Cathedral so it’s central. I expect there is a connection to the church and the mix of furnishings suggests some of these may have been donated from next door but there are plenty of them so...More

Cafe Camino used to be good. Since the latest new management, sad to say it has steadily deteriorated. I've been coming to Cafe Camino every Thursday afternoon for 3 or 4 years now and so I am perfectly privy to the demise of this once...More

Came here last week for a spot of lunch and the special for the day was Mediterranean sausages served with mash and some kind of gravy. The sausages were so tasty. Coffee was pretty good also.

Sorry about you disappointment with sandwiches, our brief was to have some vegan options available hence the mushroom variety. If you had let us known at the time we would have happily got the kitchen to whip a sandwich more to your liking.
