It's far from what we are expecting when it is rated so high. Coffee is soso, where most of the coffee we had was great before. It was ok overall, just overrated...

Had the Pina colada tea (better than it sounds) and scone with jam. They have an amazing selection of teas and do cakes and salads too. Lovely little shop/café, well worth a visit or three.
