The cake is so scrumptious

we enjoyed a good coffee and atmosphere, having been recommended by a gallery down the road. The cake was fresh and really large portions. Well done guys

Whether it is just a cuppa and a wonderful piece of homemade cake or a freshly prepared lunch, this place is great. Nothing fancy, wooden tables and scattered cushions but delicious, well priced good food served by very pleasant, helpful people

Stumbled across this fantastic little café, a real gem. Looking in we saw all the tables filled (always a good sign) but fortunately someone was leaving so we jumped in. First thing that struck me was the bright airy room, large windows flooded with sunlight made it very welcoming. The next thing was the sight of their sweet trolley ...so... More

i have been here a fair few times now and I've never been disappointed! last time i went i sampled the apple sage and lentil bake to say it was divine is an understatement! certainly advisable to book a table as it's a small place and make sure you bring cash!

This is our favourite place for lunch, the food is always delicious and freshly prepared. It's good value for money and highly recommend the tasty soups especialy the dhal. There is a slant towards middle eastern food and lots of veggi choices, so there's always something interesting to experiment with. I have never had any bad service or bad food... More

We had been to Penlee House gallery and were cutting through the back streets to go to the Exchange and stopped at the honey-pot for lunch. What a breath of fresh air. We sat in a cosy corner- Good service- good choice of food - reasonable prices and we shall definitely go there again.!

On a dull, rainy day we spotted a range of tasty-looking cakes through the window and came inside. With a friendly welcome and a table by the window we decided to have lunch. Good decision! Homemade and very tasty, my choice was leek and goats' cheese tart with new potatoes. Husband's choice was lasagne with garlic bread. Excellent food, the... More

We have visited this cafe/bistro on several occasions and have always been delighted with the service and the food. However this time we felt that there was poor value for money. we had a brie, bacon and cranberry baguette. the bacon was tiny pieces that looked as if it was the sort of bits you woudl buy in tescos for...
