I always pop in here on my way to the train station in the morning because the coffee is really good, staff are really friendly and it has a lovely atmosphere. At the weekends I've been a few times for brunch as they serve a good selection of breakfast dishes such as eggs benedict which I throughly recommend and of... More

Had a bite of lunch here while waiting for a train. Lovely food, lovely coffee and lovely staff and one of the most captivatingly beautiful waitresses I have ever seen. It was shame to leave and get the train.

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.

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.
