A wee gem

You can not move for pubs and restaurants in cowes. Especially during the regatta, the reason I'm on the Isle of White. However there is a lack of top coffee shops. Meet the exception. Jolliffe hand presses it's coffee and it packs a real punch. I usually prefer latte art ( Melbourne style coffee... read more

This Coffee shop at the far end of the town, just up the hill, has a great atmosphere. Do not expect great service as its mainly "do it yourself"you order and then when the coffee is ready you are called to the county. The shop was at one time a Victorian shoe shop with two floors. The upper floor was... More

Stopped by here on Saturday after seeing the amazing cakes in the window and they certainly didn’t disappoint. The lemon and lavender cake was amazing. The staff were really friendly and the coffee was good. I’d definitely recommend stopping in for great cake and coffee.

We have been suffering recently from tea shops shutting at 3pm. Not here. We wandered in around at 4.45pm to a warm welcome and no sign of closure. We elected for a proper pot of tea for 2. Very good value at £2.50 and served in a pot that pours AND with a jug of hot water. Coupled with crumpets... More

Great cafe with lovely coffee and good choice of art available to purchase. It is a shame they do not cater for people with allergies, as there was nothing I could eat I doubt I will return.

Lovely building with a nice selection of refreshments. Was a little lacking in atmosphere when we were in, could have heard a pin drop! But was the end of the day and the low season so can't hold it against the place too much.

A very pleasant and unusual venue with cheap prices for coffee, tea and hot chocolate and a lively, polite and effective service. Housed in one of Cowes' most interesting buildings, it's also a unique place to visit, with its impressive 1920s stained glass fittings and the walls doubling up as an arts showroom. (I also recommend the ginger cookies! Moist,... More

The building is wonderful but is It a coffee shop or a shop selling art. I don't think the owners knows or cares as the service is very poor. Needs a new owner and total revamp as it could be so nice.

some spot for a quiet artisan coffee - place is run by a genuine character, and it shines through in the decor and the coffee try the filled rolls.... they're delicious!
