Veggie and vegan options - great soup sandwiches and cake. A really charming café. Great place for a quiet read or a chat with friends - and of course, to bring your bike to be mended!

Great place. Popped in for a quick coffee but enjoyed the laid back atmosphere that much that I stayed far longer than I intended. Time well spent. Thanks for the lovely coffee. Highly recommend if you're in the area.
