Can't fault this place. Really delicious coffee, soup and bagels. Assume the bread that came with the soup was supplied by the amazing sour dough bakery next door. Love the quirky but comfy furniture.

This is one of the best coffee houses in Shrewsbury. The coffee is always great and staff are really friendly. The cafe also has a lovely atmosphere and is great for people watching as it is so close to the railway station.

I have had coffee from here several times to take out and it has always been great. This is the first occasion I have had the opportunity to have a drink inside. The coffee was great as usual and I also had a delicious Chelsea bun with it. The staff are very friendly and the coffee house has a lovely... More

Travelled over from Chester a couple of time to indulge in a coffee here, the flat white is a silky smooth texture and great taste made by someone who obviously enjoys a good brew too I love the design of the room with some of the old shop fittings still in situ

Don't do reviews at all but this morning has changed all that!! Ordered two coffees which took 15 minutes to arrive,I said they took a long time which bearded waiter replied " well you were at the back of a long queue". Such a bad attitude,as he could have been just slightly apologetic but no he then proceeded to be... More

Dear Mr Stuey James, I'm sorry to read if your review of that Saturday morning in December when you visited us with your friend. I remember that morning was terribly busy for us and as a result all customers were made aware of the fact that drinks would take a little longer than usual. I remember our staff member taking...

A nice environment to enjoy coffee and a cake/pastry. The flat white I ordered was nice but not the best I've had. Pain aux chocolate was very good! They offer free wifi. Parking is very limited as with all of Shrewsbury but there is 1hr street parking outside and just up the road.
