“Beautiful cakes, lovely tea and fantastic staff!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

Fantastic selection of teas and cakes, with a fantastic explanitory menu. Cosy seating with floor cushions and beanbags .... its a home from home! Plenty of boardgames too :-) excellent for your innner child! Depsite being very busy, staff were friendly and engaging, with a great sense of humour.
Overall the perfect place to chill out and enjoy a natter with friends over some of the nicest and most unusual tea ... the amaretto tea is a must!! A unique little place in the middle of franchises and over priced chains ... please visit!!!

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

Endless choice of teas, very friendly service. Cosy decor.

Their breakfast and lunch menu are slightly limited though. But the food is good quality.

Their long opening hours make it very convenient to go anytime.

So much better than the generic high street chains of coffee shops.

“"Brilliant Coffee, Brilliant Deco and Vegan Options!"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

Really impressed, I loved how they had decorated the place so my first impression was very good. I had the best hazelnut cappuccino I have ever had - really delicious. By this time I was already convinced that I would return, but if I needed more convincing, after looking at the menu I saw vegan options and a vegan cake which I was very please to see, unfortunately I had not come to eat, but my friend was very happy with his cheese and ham stottie.

Would definitely recommend, will definitely be returning.

So much choice of tea. The cakes are really good as well, especially the gluten free ones. Have been a couple of times now.

“Splendid place to while away a few hours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

Went here with youngest daughter, whilst eldest went to Open Day at the University. We must've have ended up staying here for about fours hours. Food, tea, coffee and other drinks are all excellent, but what really made it were the staff and the selection of board games, which were all in peak condition. Obviously the usual clientele for this place really appreciate what it offers.
