“Avoid”
Reviewed April 16, 2012

Crowded environment, unfriendly staff always in a hurry, and non-descript food and surrounds.

“Quiet cosy bar!”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

We had drinks and cocktails there and was impressed by the quiet and cosy feel it had. We were looking for somewhere that was not to far to walk and a place to relax and chat. And we found it, even the outside chairs and blankets I thought was a nice touch. Good value, nice location, good cafe.

“A little gem”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

This cafe bar is a hive of activity. I only dropped in for a coffee and cake, both of which were delicious, but I'll definitely return for a snack lunch sometime as the menu looked great. This place is frequented by locals (always a good sign) and the staff are very friendly. They also have rooms if you want to stay a few days in the area. There is a small seating area outside but it is right on the pavement so you get a lot of traffic passing by.
