I visited here with family for a spot of lunch whilst shopping in town.
The venue was quiet, with only a couple of other groups in, and it doesn't get a lot of light in, being situated in a rather narrow lane. But the decor is relaxed, and gives a pretty 'hip' vibe. Lots of chrome, splashes of colour, but it feels a little tired.
The food was good, and the prices are avarage for the city centre bar scene. The menu consists of soup & sandwich or chips and chilli, macaroni cheese etc (mostly £6 - £8). Nothing particularly original, but the veggie burrito (£7.75) we had was surprisingly tasty, (although if you don't handle your jalepenos you should probably let them know - it was pretty spicy)
We ordered house coke's and had to send them back, when we mentioned to the waitress they tasted funny she admitted that she didn't like or drink it either. So I would steer clear of that. Thankfully they sell name brand cans too, which she kindly swapped for our original drinks. The service overall was good, but being that it was quiet, I couldn't be a judge if you happened to be here on a busy evening.
If this cafe bar has any major faults it's the bathroom. Dark, grubby with cracked tiles, toilet roll holder hanging off & locks on the doors broken. This really put a dampner on our visit, and would greatly improve the overall impression if these were given a refurb.
Overall I'd pop in again for something simple if I was local, but it's probably not a place I'd purposefully go to, there are similar, but better places nearby. I have a feeling that the atmosphere & feel of the place is much more suited to early evening or after work drink & snack type visit.
