My Thompsons Close secret. The lovely staff always serve with a smile and the lunch choices are small but good with lovely homemade soups, salads, pasta, panninis and cakes!!!! Great coffee. A regular visitor love it.

Really good coffee and service. Pasta dishes are very good at lunchtime. This coffee bar sometimes gets a little too crowded!
