Lovely little cafe, great cakes and good breakfast

C is for Cookie is a lovely little cafe offering a limited, but very tasty, breakfast menu and some absolutely amazing cakes. Friendly staff, lots of students, good atmosphere. They do a good coffee as well.

Came here during a day of city sightseeing for a light lunch. Very cute, little cafe indeed. Warm, relaxing and very clean. The homemade tomato soup was delicious, as was the accompanying bread.

We stopped off here for a cuppa and a cake in between seeing the sights, it's a nice little cafe with a good selection of cakes and light bites.

Very pleasant environment. The apple pie and chocolate cake in a mug where really good. It's located in the city centre and a good option for an afternoon stop.

This was across from our hotel so we went for breakfast. The coffee was not great but its a small place and ok. Unfortunately half way through my breakfast I discovered a large black hair under my egg. This put me off. I couldn't wait to get out and we never went back. Maybe this is a one-off looking at...
