We also sell Miles loose leaf tea by the pot and lots of other refreshing and imaginative drinks including local artisan brews and cheeky tipples.

Another visit to Aroma and once again not disappointed. The choice of menu is different and interesting, but absolutely delicious. The fresh ingredients and combination of flavours WOW & that's why we keep coming back when in the area. Well done to the staff for an enjoyable experience.

Clearly labelled GF and DF menu, scrummy food, excellent staff, cosy setting. We popped in for a couple of sandwiches and drinks at Sunday lunchtime.

Went in on a very rainy day, very busy but managed to find a space. Nice quirky decor around the place. I ordered a hot chocolate (the 75% chocolate) there are loads of different types of Hot chocolate that you wouldn't get in a high street brand like Costa and cafe Nero. Would recommend to anyone who is walking by.

lovely independent coffee shop - and nearly all the gorgeous looking cakes were gluten free! (and when you're a coeliac and denied cakes in most cafes that make you feel you want to eat them all!) I managed to stick to just one - the pear fudge brownie. And the best thing? It didn't taste as if it was gluten... More

We stopped in here for lunch a few weeks ago after a long gap between visits, and were pleased to see a new (to us) menu with some delicious and healthy, veggie/vegan options, as well as some more indulgent ones. The four of us ended up going for a mixture of sandwiches and hummus/pita and salad, one really positive thing... More

Opposite the Museum & Tourist Info office we found this charming cafe. Staff were welcoming, efficient and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble - I had a cold and felt like comfort food, and although the menu said it was past time for serving breakfast, they made scrambled eggs for me. Portion was huge, on delicious granary toast. My friend... More
