Queue to get into this place, but can understand why as it is worth it. Tea's were delicious and they have an amazing range. The scone was also large and tasty. My daughter ordered hot fruit tea unwittingly, but the staff made good on fixing...More

I clocked this place on the way to th Hancock Museum and knew I'd head in there after my visit. I was not disappointed. It offers something totally unique to the usual chain, run of the mill coffee shops. My daughter's had cheese and chive...More
