What an amazing setting for a café! It really would take some beating. I'm a regular customer and always enjoy relaxing with my latte. The staff are exceptionally polite, pleasant and... More

This is a real 'find' for me. You just get such a great feel as you walk through the doors of the magnificent old Wool Exchange. Enjoy the books then wander upstairs to the coffee shop. The best coffee I've had in a month, crumpets, really pleasant staff. If I lived here it would be my regular haunt.

Marble columns, vaulted ceiling, stone arches, just wonderful. If all this wasn't enough, ascend the stairs to the gallery, and there is a very good cafe serving fairly... More

Great coffee and even greater staff. Always find a variety of hot drinks including tea, coffee and hot chocolate, cakes and light bites available. I do recommend the Dandelion and Burdock cake. The baristas Megan and Luke work hard to ensure great customer service and also ensure the area is kept clean. Thank you and keep up the good work... More
