“An easy, comfortable dining experience with friendly staff :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

Myself and a friend dined here today around 3pm, it was neither heaving with customers nor desolate, but nicely filled out. Not very noisy, just the radio playing in the background, and i could easily talk to my friend without raising my voice. Staff are easy going, let you order and eat at your own pace which i loved. We had homous with pitta and also garlic bread (4 good size pieces) for starters. Then for mains i had the arrabiatta pasta (spicy tomato, herb and chicken), which was rich, flavoursome and hot as per request and my friend had a veg panini that she enjoyed. For desert we shared the 3 scoop icecream option, which to our surprise came in a large sundae glass, topped with some crispy wafers. The chocolate icecream in particular was delicious and had broken pieces of rich chocolate mixed in. Cranberry juice was fine, my friends tropical smoothie was nice. Bill only came to about £23 for the two of us, considering the large portions. Overall, very happy, will be dining here alot more :)

“Tasty food and friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012 via mobile

Returned after a visit a few Months ago. The place was really busy and when I taste the delicious food I understood why.
Very fast service, polite friendly staff and a variety of dishes on the well priced menu.

A little gem

“Cracking little Cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

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.

“Will return...again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

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.
