Delicious food, great vegan options. Ideal for lunch / coffee break. The decor is very quirky and makes it different to other coffee shops in the area. Highly recommend picking this place.

A coffee shop which oozes the relaxed ambiance and unhurried atmosphere all great coffee house should have but rarely achieve. All backed up with great coffee, tea and supper friendly staff.

Love the book art, but the coffee is great too! Try their muffins.. seating is very relaxed: your own table or the sofa.

If you don't want to get your drinks from a chain with dubious tax paying policies then this is a good option. An individual cafe with decent tea and coffee and real art on the walls.
