“The best coffee in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

I love Starbucks and regular at Costa but latte at this place is awesome! So tasty n so proper made coffee with that fresh coffee smell and amazing taste! No need for any syrups or sugar. Lots of space if you are with your little one or for little group of friends to have coff

“Bit disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

Bit disappointed on our visit, I think the cafe has changed hands. Food was nice but very frugal. I had a piece of tart and a little bit of salad served with it. Came to over £9.00 with a small bottle of elderberry drink. Had to have a cake after as we were still hungry which was another £2.00. I have visited this cafe a lot over the past few years. Used to be lovely food with fairly ample portions. It was very cold in there too. Sorry we will be going elsewhere for our lunches now.

“Excellent freshly-cooked lunches and snacks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2011

The cafeteria-style restaurant in the Civic Centre (which also has an art gallery and houses the city library) offers a choice of three cooked dishes to eat in, and a variety of sandwiches and cakes to eat in or take away. There's always a vegetarian option, which is sometimes a Spanish tortilla, sometimes a bean casserole or a vegetable curry - which are always tasty, and served with rice or salad. The fresh salad is always fresh and, as with the hot food, the portions are generous. Yesterday I had the Greek salad, including stuffed vine leaves and excellent olives and feta. There's always also a meat or fish option. Coffee is excellent. Everything looks and tastes like it has been freshly cooked on the premises. Highly recommended for lunch.
