It's quite easy to blink and miss this little gem as it's tucked away at the end of a bookshop.and you have to walk through the bookshop to get to the coffee shop. Fairly spacious plus seating in a small courtyard area at the back. Close to the Abbey and Almshouses. Various light meals available (soup, jacket potatoes, quiches, paninis etc) and a good variety of drinks. Clean and bright with very friendly service, a relaxed atmosphere and great food and drink which is reasonably priced. As it's slightly off the beaten track it doesn't seem to get as crowded as some of the other venues but the food is just as good as at the other eateries nearby, and in fact probably better. Would highly recommend it.
