The pastry looks gorgeous. We had a croissant and a chocolate roll over which tasted great. My partner had a ham and cheese baguette which was a terrible disappointment and a rip off. It's an overpriced cafe and we are not returning again.

Fantastic crepes, especially the savoury ones with mushroom, ham & cheese! We watch Autumn the smiley happy waitress make them in front of us, very insightful. The corn fritter were also very delicious and full we were ready to shop. Perfect breakfast to start the...More

Just been served ice cold burger and fries... shame as I had heard such good things. Perhaps chef can ensure food is taken to table within a few moments of it been ready. I suspect as understaffed my burger had sat and fees had also...More
