Am a self confessed coffee snob and always on the lookout for good coffee. Stumbled upon this place enroute and didn't disappoint. Exquisite flat white with a choice of bean! Served by passionate and driven baristas. Loved the atmosphere and ambiance. Zelda was welcomed in with dog cookies and I had one of the best flat whites ever. Bought coffee... More

I'm fortunate to be able to visit this great coffee shop frequently and it's totally changed my taste buds for good coffee. You could say I've become a coffee snob. The staff here are super friendly and enthusiastic about what they do as well as serving up a perfect flat white (latte drinkers this is the way to go). I... More

Great coffee and slightly quirky surroundings. They also do a great range of herbal teas. Been here quite a few times over the years and I love it. It's definitely better than any chain!

The staff of this great little coffee house will probably cringe at my use of the cliché but I'd struggle to sum it up briefly without using the word 'bohaemian'. I'll add the words quirky and cosy, just to add insult to injury! What I can say is that you get an exceptionally good cup of coffee here. The effusively... More

Unique and atmospheric interior, very enthusiastic staff and good coffee. The tables are slightly wobbly so consider yourself warned.

We popped in yesterday for a bit of lunch and a hot drink. We sat down at a table but we're not approached about ordering or a menu. We figured out eventually we had to go up to the bar (the place is tiny and it wouldn't have taken much to tell us that!) The coffee menu is hard to... More

Thanks for popping in yesterday, Sorry that you felt the out guys were not up to scratch on the service front. We do pride ourselves on our great customer service and have just won an award for that very thing. I can assure you that we are a very busy shop so your observation about only a few customers in...

This is hands-down the best coffee and warmest welcome in Buckingham. The guys are always friendly and chatty, and ready to recommend coffees etc. The coffee shop itself is quirky and cosy and it's a great location opposite the Saturday flea market. Highly recommend.

A fab place to go for a coffee. Quirky, they really know their coffee and you can also get some great herbal teas that are really flavoursome. It's the sort of place you can go into by yourself and sit quietly with a book or chat to the other people in there. Really friendly. And dog friendly too!
