Lovely little coffee shop serving excellent home made produce in an intimate comfortable environment. Lovely quirky atmosphere but comfortable where you know service and quality is their priority.

So pleased we found this little gem. Delicious teas (loose leaf) and no nonsense tasty food. The two ladies who served us today, were welcoming and professional. Vintage decor with teapots for sale. Lovely!

I've lived in Daventry for a year now and every week me and my friend are 'ladies who lunch' and I'm gobsmacked that we have never been into the courtyard cafe.

Just in the right place to pop in after a visit to the library. Good coffee, nice atmosphere and reasonable prices. A pleasant place to sit and chat with friends, not as hectic as some other cafes!
