In this people friendly place your cup of coffee is of good quality, nicely presented, reasonably priced, and comes with a little selection of chocolate buttons... mmmm The cakes and scones are good too, as is the hot chocolate. Grab a seat while you can!

Plenty of choice of hot drinks & chocolate confectionery. Only downside is the wait because they're always busy, still worth it though.

Wow, I can still taste the warm liquid please several hours later. Such a soothing mug of dark chocolate mocha. Comfortable coffee shop on a great location. Sweet and efficient staff to round it out. The tea and americano coffee were also enjoyed by my family.
