Grabbed a take-away coffee on my way to the train station, and must say it was the best coffee I've had in Southampton. A little pricey (2.45 pounds for a latte + 50p for decaf) but well worth it for the flavoursome coffee. And service was prompt and friendly - I'll be back!

Popped in here whilst we were waiting for a train, really friendly staff, allowed us to bring a very small dog into the cafe. Good cakes, excellent coffee. Even gave us a dish of water for the dog. Very friendly and reasonable. Toilets and cafe were immaculate, I thoroughly recommend.

Went here for lunch due to heavy traffic into Southampton parked at my husbands office and decided to walk into town, it was lunch time and had been here before for a sandwich so decided to try again. The setting is great comfortable seats, very friendly staff and great menu selection. I had a toasted goats cheese and caramelised onion... More

I'm a regular here, and it's always impressive. Best coffee for miles, imaginative menus and great staff / owners and service. Always a friendly welcome.

Discovered this total gem of a place about a year ago and stop here almost weekly for a coffee. It's got such a nice independent feel and the staff always greet us with a big smile :D the only food I've tried is the sweet treats and pastries off the counter which are insanely delicious (especially the chocolate truffles and...

Burgers half price on a Monday delicious. Desserts and cakes not their strong suit. Staff were fabulous and went out their way to make me feel comfortable as a solo diner on business.

After a long tiring dreary day, this cafe was close by and recommended by guest house owner. It was great: cold beer, nice wine and good food. A great way to refresh and re-charge our spirits! The cafe has an extensive menu and some great dessert items. Only half a block from the train station too!
