Tucked away up a quiet alley, this unassuming cafe has a wonderful array of homemade cakes, pies and desserts. Found the savoury selection limited and a little expensive - but the sweet section more than made up for it.

Visited here for some lunch after the museum and castle. Although hidden away, this little gem is worth a visit. Friendly and accommodating staff and a yummy selection of food on offer (mostly homemade). Something for everyone on the menu.

Don't be put off by the small exterior, this is a very good place to eat. In The corner of Swan Courtyard , behind the Main Street. Great for coffee & cake or lunch. Think everything is cooked on the premises.
