Excellent coffee and my wife is still talking about how good the Hot Chocolate was. We also shared a coffee and walnut locally made cake and this was to die for. Overall an excellent experience in this small but very friendly local cafe

Without a doubt this was the best coffee I've tasted for a long time!!! The cakes are freshly made and really tasty, the staff are friendly and provide great service rarely found. The menu is good and specials interesting and when my partner wanted something which was not on the actual menu they were more than happy to make it.... More

We have coffee here, with friends, at least once a week. We are now known well by Francesca and her staff who are always very friendly. The best coffee in town!

Had some coffee here late morning and it was excellent - really first class. Returned later for a light lunch where we had mushrooms and Mediterranean vegetables in a flatbread, and that was really very good too. Service was Ok

As a regular visitor to Cafe Espresso I am very surprised to see a couple of negative reviews here. The coffee is excellent and considerably better than any from the national chains. The food is really fresh and tasty and always prepared to order. I have never heard the staff refuse to make a change to the menu when asked... More

Well I tried, gave it another go.... We asked for something not exactly the same as the menu but only a different combination of fillings that are already on offer, and the answer was no! Not very accomodating, in fact quite rude, Still too expensive and coffee bitter. Traffic noise was awful and it was very hot and cramped. My... More

An excellent coffee shop with very good pannini and many loyal patrons. Very friendly and just off the market place. Despite what some other reviewers have said, coffee is good in size and sensibly priced. Cakes to die for, and does gluten-free, soya etc.

Had two coffees while we were there, nothing special and very expensive, the room was very narrow and cramped, alot of traffic noise, due to being next to road so not very relaxing. Menu quite expensive all round. Shame!

Came here last year in early July. The cafe was packed with people and there was a piano inside with some great Boogie Woogie music being played.. Id arrived in the middle of the towns annual Boogie Woogie festival. Wow, the joint was jumping. I'm sure its not always like that but the atmosphere was fantastic. I will definitely be... More
