Popped in for a coffee with my friend. Which we was disappointed with. The coffee was very bitter and had no flavour. The atmosphere was unwelcoming, and the staff where not helpful at all when I complained about my coffee. Will not be returning and will not be recommending.

The breakfasts are freshly cooked as are the lunch time meals , whether they are sandwiches or complete meals every thing is well presented and very tasty. They cater... More

I have been eating at this little bistro since they opened ten years ago and have to say the food is wonderful and the menu changes frequently although luckily my favourite Italian breakfast is always served! The service is truly impeccable; staff are always polite and will do their upmost to please the customers. Slightly baffled by the previous review... More
