I ate here two times. It is located by a super good bookstore. Both sandwiches I had were good (BLT and a panini). Fast service, seat yourself or take away.

Popped in to the take away section and collected a sandwich for lunch. Large enough for 2 people to share. Very tasty, fast efficient service. Had a coffee and sat outside. An enjoyable half hour being amused watching American drivers trying to negotiate the roundabout!

Their baked goods are worth crawling for ten miles on bleeding hands and knees. Pumpkin cranberry pie and the carrot cake are both parties excellance.

This cafe is in the Northshire Bookstore. They have a wide variety of coffee and a huge choice of brownies, cheesecakes, cookies and other delights. We loved the lemon squares and the double chocolate brownies. They have a large dining area so nice place to hang out. They also have sandwiches and other light meals.

The cafe is attached to the Northshire Bookstore which itself is a place worth visiting. The cafe offers a place for coffee and tea. At lunch there is a section of quiche and such and some pastries during the day. There is a dining area with wifi.

I really wanted to write a review that was positive. I will say the cookies, treats, and even the sandwiches are very enjoyable. The one thing that has always been a challenge at the Spiral Press Cafe is their staff. They're attitude for and toward customers is horrible. Down right nasty. Its as if they're doing you a favor by... More

Just looking for good espresso coffee and this was delivered. Looked like some very tasty food options but sadly we had already eaten breakfast. Worth going to and so not Starbucks!!! It's real coffee and tastes great.

Recommend by an employee of Orvis and he was right on. Excellent menu. I had a roast beef sandwich and the beef was superb. Tender and red. Once you order, go upstairs if eating in as your food will be brought up. Restaurant and bookstore are connected. Wait staff are very good.

We pulled in for morning coffee and breakfast pastry and were happy for the connection to the bookstore. Coffee was great, pastries great. It's snug at the counter but everyone is friendly and congenial. Take it to go or sit outside on the patio or inside (up and to the left) where there was plenty of seating. AND a bookstore!... More

Good selection of coffee, tea, and juices. Gluten free option for wraps and salads, but sadly not in the sweets when I was there.
