Description: Multi-award winning small coffee shop. The focus is definitely on coffee but we also offer a range of sandwiches, salads, soups and cakes depending on the season. We've built a reputation for doing some of the best coffee in the region whilst also working very hard to make your visit enjoyable with great service too.

This little cafe has a lot of character, hidden away in the basement of a shop on Ridley Place. A slightly unfriendly welcome by the man working the till in the shop, who demanded that I close the door. A smile or a please/thankyou would have gone along way. The service in the coffeehouse below was much better, and the coffee and cakes were excellent. Would particularly recommend the salted caramel brownie.

Love this place. Coffee is amazing and the service is top class !! Flat Cap Joe as we all know him is a top guy and has won a few coffee competitions in his time. So he know his coffee. Bought a bag of #Hasbean Coffee Beans from him and this coffee is LUSH !! This place is like a secret den and it's so relaxing from the coffee shop chains. Would recommend this place to anybody who likes quiet relaxing and coffee at it's best !!

Me and my girlfriend stopped in for a coffee and a cake, we tried both the guest coffees and they were top notch, we also had a raspberry muffin each which were very nice. Never had a bad experience in here. Thanks see you next time

Took a bit to find but this coffee shop is great. The coffee is amazing and the Nutella brownies are just as good. Also, the way in which the filter coffees are presented is particularly unique as they bring it to the table with the filter on it!

Recently visited and had got drinks and a sandwich. Mocha was great, tea gets served with the milk in little glass bottles which is cute.

Very disappointed in service. We stood at the counter waiting to be served whilst two members of staff carried on their conversation abut the coffee machine for about a minute. Doesn't seem like long but when you are standing there waiting it is. No apology afterwards.

We left, again two member of staff didnt say thank you or goodbye or anything.
