Found this Restaurant by chance, and what a lucky find. The butternut squash soup was the best I have ever tasted, the sandwich that came with the deal was also delicious, filled with beef and beet root chutney and some salad, so well filled that I asked for a 'doggy bag' to take the second half home which they willingly...

I had to go here because the cafe I wanted was full. All I wanted was a tea and a cake, but it was going to cost me £5.90 so just went for tea. The cake I wanted was a brownie, but it was very small. Thought a biscuit would be cheaper but it was a £1 a biscuit. I... More

We went for lunch on Friday and had a lovely lunch. Soup, sandwiches and coffees. They keep it simple and deliver it very well. The toilets were clean and fresh. Good selection of magazines. Lovely atmosphere. What a gem.

Came for lunch with the family. Good sized menu,even the fussiest of eaters will find something to eat on - it all reasonably priced. Soup'n'sandwich for £6 was excellent value, big bowl of homemade soup (choice of 3) and a well filled sandwich. Nice coffee too (beans came from macbeans coffee house next door) and they even served some local... More

This is such a lovely independent café. The venue itself is airy and welcoming, and very child friendly. The home baking is delicious. I particularly recommend the cheese scones (get them early, they run out fast!) and the world's largest chocolate brownie. My husband always has the coffee and almond cake and raves about it. The drink and cake deal... More

Just off Belmont street, this place is always reliable, either for a quick coffee, lunch or just coffee and cake on the run. I always had great service here, this time no exception. They have quite a few gluten free options, both in terms of bread and cakes. Cosy, with fresh flowers and homey and decent food. I like this... More

On a side street close to the centre. Good coffee and selection of teas. The cakes are excellent - traditional Victoria Sponge a favourite.

I'm such a coffee fan and it's brilliant to find somewhere that cares and has their own blend! I visit here when I get the chance and it never disappoints! One of the girls told me they were looking at getting another blend and can't wait to try it! You do pay a little more but it's worth it, my... More
