Very pleasant little spot that keeps drawing you back. Attentive and pleasant staff, food freshly prepared and reasonably quick. Good menu choices,and you will be pleased with what comes out of the kitchen. Get in early as it's not a secret any more. Paul Kelly

My partner and I stopped in here for lunch. The staff were really warm and friendly. I had a really tastey wrap and the coffee was really good. Resisted temptation with the cakes they had on offer - looked fab. Would definitely recommend!

We just stepped in this cute little cafe for a short break. The employees were very friendly and the cake were great. What I liked is that they support local traders.
