We love it here! Reasonably priced, always busy and consistent quality. Service is often a bit slow but it’s always worth the wait. Much prefer to the chain coffee shops on the high street.

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.
