We had really good coffee, good flavour but not bitter and very hot. Great cakes: we had millionaires’ shortbread and fruitcake which was packed with fruit and nuts.

Very inviting decor, interesting cafe which served a good cup of coffee. We didn't eat but the cakes, pastries looked very good. Fiancé had chocolate milkshake but was just an average one out of a machine. Would visit again.
