Great location just near the Cathedral. Friendly service and great coffee. The menu suggests it’s a bit of a jack of all trades, but I think they get a large cross section of customers. Don’t be put off: I had a gorgeous fresh baked (I saw him juggling the dough in the open plan kitchen) ham and mushroom pizza and the wife loved her pesto Panini. Great stuff – great value.

Eaten here loads of times, and other than early on a Sunday morning this place is always heaving!

The staff are very friendly. The food great. Last time I had the lasagne. I'll be honest It's not as good as mums lasagne, but it's not shame coming second place., as my mum is the worlds best cook. My wife had the "fishy" pasta dish (cannot remember its name). It was very good.

Personally I am surprised that they can keep everything together when they are so busy, but that is a testament to their professionalism.

Will return again.

Don't be put off when you walk into this restaurant.....its soooo badly decorated as you go in you think you're entering a jungle! But looks can be deceiving.......as you walk further in things DO get better....rustic wooden furniture and a wallpapered mural ease the jungle feel! Generally Coventry is completely devoid of any decent coffee shops.....bog standard chains of Starbucks, Costa and Cafe Nero are your lot.....but this little cafe offers good coffee and a good selection of cafe style food. The spinach and ricotta cannelloni is very tasty, although they do serve it with crisps and salad which they won't allow you to swop for a more normal garlic bread...but then they do serve crisps and salad with everything for some reason! The goats cheese and caramelised onion panini is delicious, as is the 3 colour salad (mozarella, tomato and avacado) and they also offer a good selection of wraps and pizzas.

On arrival we were pleasently suprised, lovely decor, great menu, welcoming staff.
Unfortunately after pacing our order it all went a bit down hill. Meals all came out at seperate times with a long wait between each. Some dishes were amazing, others awful.
Toilet facilities filthy.
It is sad as it appears to be a beautifully set up restaurant with a great menu and some lovely staff but we would not return and were thoroughly dissapointed especially as this was a birthday meal.

I have been numerous times because the food is so nice. I would go more but it is more expensive than other takeout options. we tend to go for birthdays.
Service is excellent and I have never felt rushed even when they are busy.
