I really love coffee, and this place has real good coffee.... made with a proper coffee machine! Any coffee you want from a flat white to a cortado. They also have cakes and a small menu, but we only had coffee. They have beautiful coffee tins filled with coffee beans or ground coffee to buy as a gift. Great quick... More

Great coffee house that serves a range of food, coffee & cakes. Only had a spiced coffee & piece of carrot cake but it was great.

This was a great place to sit and work. The food was good and the coffee was excellent. But, most of all, go for the lovely staff, who are warm and welcoming.

Came twice here, obviously very touristy but worth a visit. The ladies are lovely and we were lucky to catch them dancing and singing Hakuna Matata to a guest. The Chapizza is fantastic! Nice experience.
