Behind a tiny frontage there is a world of excellent coffee and food - oh, and delicious teas in transparent tea pots. Also the first Ristretto I have seen in years and the best since Sydney!

We went to this coffee shop as a little holiday treat and were not disappointed. Fantastic coffee as it promises, children enjoyed their milkshakes too. The cakes are fantastic and homemade, we enjoyed brownie, flapjack, lemon drizzle and orange cake. All yummy with very helpful staff and reasonably priced. Make sure you go!!!!

We went here for a quiet coffee. I had a chai latte and it was lovely! Great setting, friendly staff. Go upstairs for the best seats. Very relaxed. Well recommended.

Service was good and fast as well as helpful. We asked for a mix not on the menu and had not problem in being able to order it. The coffee was excellent, the scone was good, and the bacon was excellent too. Lovely atmosphere in a quaint building, plenty of community information on the walls.

The coffee here is divine. The owner knows how to treat coffee and is the best barista ever. The food is also very good with a daily specials menu. All fresh stuff and sourced mainly locally. Good atmosphere and service.
