A friend and I were looking for somewhere to sit down with a hot drink and a slice of cake, and walked past a couple of large coffee chains in search of something local and welcoming.

Stopped off for a quick coffee n cake, a little disappointed with the lack of range on cupcakes on offer, however, the menu offered seemed to cater for most tastes. Coffee didn't disappoint, possibly one of the best cappuccino's I've ever had. Staff seemed friendly and very efficient

Lovely homely vintage feel cafe. We had breakfast menu - salmon and cream cheese bagel, and decaf cappuccino. All fab, decent amount of salmon and fresh bagel. Nice busy but relaxed vibe and although bisy not noisy inside. Would definitely recommend.
