5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

I buy my coffee here every week day and occasionally on weekends. Great service, great food and quite nice to look at staff.

“Oh so noisy!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Good coffee, nice food, friendly service but terribly noisy and had to finish early as couldn't hear yourself speak. Kitchen noise, rattling of plates, moving of chairs and normal conversation at other tables seemed to reverberate around the cafe. People had to speak loudly to be heard and thIs just compounded the problem. Some soft furnishings would help absorb the noise.
Apart from the noise s nice place to stop for a coffee.

“Good average cuppa java”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

It's a good average cuppa java served in ordinary surrounds. Basic coffee shop service & quality value for money.
