Went for breakfast and has a wonderful morning. Food was superb, and the staff was friendly. It wasnt very busy so we sat there for a long time just chatting away.

A stone throw from the hustle and bustle of the centre. I stopped in for a late lunch and a catchup on work. Nice character, friendly staff and good food.

After an early start it was time for some breakfast - where to go? Using the trip advisor app we were directed to Cafe Wander which is a cosy basement diner in the city centre. The service is warm and friendly and and the fresh orange juice is exactly that. Food is cooked to order and our full breakfast certainly... More

Dove in here for a brew when it started chucking it down! We had just had a meal out, so we were too full for cake, but I'd definitely go back to sample the food! Staff are so kind and friendly and took time to chat to us and make us feel welcome. Would definitely recommend! :)
