The staff are friendly and keen to help. All cakes are fresh and delicious. If you want a warm atmosphere and great service its well worth a visit, 5 out of 5.

“A great place for a mid-morning break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

They certainly know how to make a good cup of coffee! Quite a small cafe, but with friendly staff and nice food. The menu is short - but everything is fresh and of high quality. Never disappoints!

“Loud staff, prices ridiculous!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

Having read previous trip advisor reviews of this cafe it seemed like a safe bet.
However disappointment wasn't the word. It's a basic cafe with cheap, uncomfortable furniture and staff to match!
The menu is trying to be something the "local caf" is not and is highly overpriced for what you get.
I was shocked how loud and brash the staff were too!
Never mind Specsavers, should have gone to Howies!! (Bistro directly opposite where food and service is second to none in the area).
