In with mum for 2 coffees, 1 tray bake and I had the granola. Great presentation, lovely homemade granola with yogurt and honey on top, a small bowl with fresh blueberries, strawberries and apple chopped up and milk. Best granola I've had anywhere, good coffee and good service. Will definitely be back soon, g

Latte had design on it. Lots of little extra touches made it seem very special. Lovely little milk canisters, really different. Staff lovely and friendly.... More
