I absolutely love their smoked salmon bagel and in my opinion the best cappuccino. The cooked breakfast is worth a try too. The staff are friendly and the restaurant is always cleaned to a high standard.

Disappointing coffee, poorly made. I wouldn't eat here personally as I saw two cheese sandwiches being taken out and you could buy the same from Tesco for about £1. White bread, cheddar, few crisps on the side.

It's a coffee house and that's what it does. The coffee was good. The menu looked solid and the cakes looked good too. The place was very warm.abd airless on a lovely spring day and would have benefited from opening the windows. The service was efficient but not particularly friendly.

Came here two times in a week. Most of the food is good but the "handmade" burger was VERY poor. It looked like something you get out of a pack, it had no taste and it had more "bits" than meat. Almost impossible to chew. Go here if you run out of places to eat, it's good for smoothies and... More

Popped in here for a spot of lunch. Nice place good service. We enjoyed our lunch of 'home made ' burgers and chips, but the burger was most defiantly not home made. It was very nice, but should not be advertised as such. Coffee was great.

Thank you for your review. In response to your comment about our burgers - we list them as "handmade" not "homemade" - they are made individually by our local butcher. For confirmation of this please feel free to pop in and speak to James at Jims butcher in the High St. More

I visited with my mum and 16 months old daughter. It was a bit tight with the pram but we made ourselves comfortable. Toilets were clean but I didn't see any baby changing facilities on my visit. The coffee was really nice and I was sad that I didn't have time to eat because the menu looked amazing. I'll have... More

Earlier this week we dropped in to this always for us, great eating place. We ordered coffee and a tea cake to share. Our coffee arrived promptly followed soon after by our tea cake, which as usual when we order one between us, was brought to us on two plates with ample butter. As usual too, all we had was... More
