A great light lunch and coffee served by friendly staff. Fab surroundings - we love the sofas. A good place to come for lunch and a gossip.

Hello! Thank you for your review. We think we need more sofas for those who love chatting and relaxing whilst lunching! We are having a little furniture update in the near future, so come and see us soon. Same food, same coffee, same cakes!

We are an independent cafe tucked away in Friar Gate Studios. Three years ago we started a new business in a sad and rather empty building. We had very little money to spend but with sheer determination, lots of passion and plenty of very hard...More

Fab coffee, fab service always with a smile. Great food. Careful of the 'healthy' flapjack, it's addictive.

The healthy flapjack is a firm favourite with most of our customers....it must be the secret ingredient we add. It makes us happy to hear that you think we are doing a great job, thank you.

Description
Creative. Award Winning. Fresh. Friendly. Local. Freshly Baked. Wifi. Cakes. Coffee. Tea. Breakfast. Lunch. Brunch. Opened in 2010 this is a large airy space where you can relax, reflect and rejuvenate. Tucked away at the back of Friar Gate Studios with a 'where on earth is it' style illusiveness, we are here to serve those in the know. The coffee is great and the service is smiley! Our ideal is to create a real feeling of community spirit, a focal point for Derby business folk and local creative's, a place to feel relaxed and a place you'll want to come back to whatever the time of day. We are open for breakfast, lunch and brunch to knock your socks off.
