Good space(lots of tables), good variety of food both hot and cold. Service good, believe you can take away as well.

“Hunger break”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

The food was very average but I loved the tables with the high backs. This is a bakers so I wasn't expecting it to be anything other than a bakers. Like I said very average but I would go back if I was hungry.

“Avoid at all costs.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

Hadn't tried so thought we would give it a go. Worst thing we ever did. Service poor. Staff not very pleasant. Food extremely basic and over priced. However I will say toilets were good.

“Good visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

I found the staff to be very helpful. I am someone who does not eat meat and there was a good selection of vegetarian options. For a standard cafe the atmosphere was good and the food was of a good standard too.
