I love meeting clients and friends there for a coffee and a slice of heavenly cheesecake! Staff is friendly and efficient. Ingredients are always fresh and food looks and tastes delicious. Love the décor. My daughters favourites are the chicken strips and brownies.

The Service was quick, with some comfortable seating. The food was very tasty too. Close to all the shops, so you can pop in for a quick bite, after some "hard" shopping.
