Unusual cafe, upstairs above a shop, with comfortable seating mostly on sofas arranged round the room. Plenty of choices for coffee and cake, and the cake slices were generous and delicious.

the cakes and savoury food are good. The coffee was very weak and I had to pay an extra 65p for another shot and even then it was not that good. £2.75 for a mediocre cup of coffee is unacceptableMore
