“Nice place but portion too small”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

This is a nice friendly cafe but my wife and I both had jacket potato's and they were small. My meal with salad cost £4.75 which isn't bad for a lunch normally but when you leave the place still feeling hungry it doesn't seem as good a value as first thought. My wife's potato without salad cost £3.60 and was even smaller. The atmosphere is good but after our experience we won't be eating there again but would go just for coffee which is good value for money. We had been looking forward to going here since it opened but were disappointed with the portion size (2 potato's of that size would have been acceptable). It's a shame because the place does have a a nice feel about it.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

A true hidden gem. Great value and top quality food. After looking on here for recommendations for a new place I decided to try here, £11.30 for two good portions of Tuna jacket potatoes with a salad, and two drinks is great value anywhere, but especially for the Town centre. If you are looking for a nice cafe to try, look no further than here. Service was quick and friendly also. Will be back.

“TLC - what a great place to relax!”
Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

Wonderful, homemade cakes, friendly service. Great place to come and chill and get away from the town crowds. The art is always interesting and the food is fresh and of a really high standard. Great coffee too!

“One of the best cafes in the North East? Definately!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

What is not to like about this cafe? The food is really tasty and really fresh and even better really cheap for the standards of the city centre! The staff are incredibly friendly and feel like you have known them for ages, so there is none of the awkward atmosphere you can get in other places. The art on display is all by local artists and constantly changing so it makes for a great atmosphere. Oh and there are cat based things everywhere and lollipops are on the menu. Pure heaven!
