Staff efficient and friendly. Serves was good food was ok . Wife said she had to much filling in her baguette. I actually think they could do with taking 2 or 3 tables away to create more room and a wee bit less noise.

The quality of food is good at this coffee shop and I use it quite regularly when in town. Service can be a little slow at times as the place gets busy at lunchtimes. I not as yet tried an evening meal there.
