Reviewed November 5, 2012

There's a little seating area upstairs but the view isn't the greatest if it's raining. Delicious bread!

“Falls well below its potential”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Nice looking place and had the potential to be great, but with mediocre cakes and foul-tasting coffee, they are probably relying on passing trade.

“Alright”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Cinnamon bun was interesting as had sunflower seeds in it. Unfortunately the coffee was lukewarm as it was the last cup in the thermos. A homey, comfie place to hang out in.
