The best coffee - well ever, and in sensible sized cups, not buckets. Always my first choice for coffee and a light meal. I was in a lift coming up from the John Lewis car park once when a man asked ( to the lift...More

Great warm welcome without being in your face. Lovely healthy selection of snacks, food, smoothies and of course coffee. Food was great and tasty, service was quick and polite. Over all glad I found this little gem.

Good coffee but minor issue dealt with very poorly, so poor we won't be back. Plenty of other choice in Kingston with good coffee and good service.

Really love this place. The food is fresh and wholesome, with a good selection of sweet and savoury dishes for vegetarians/vegans. Generous portions - salads, quiches, frittata, toasties, soup and specials. Juices and smoothies, excellent coffee. My usual choice is their simple and perfectly cooked...More
