This tiny coffee shop offers customers fantastic coffee but also the opportunity to browse the many titles of books they have in their store.
Great for afternoon tea

My husband and I very much enjoyed our breakfast here. My muesli, served with freshly cut fruit and yoghurt, was delicious. My husband raved about the Eggs Benedict. Service was friendly and in a town not noted for its coffee, the coffee here was very good!
Highly recommended.

A busy place with friendly welcoming staff. The beautifully set out bookshop is a treat. Enjoyed coffee and a vanilla slice.
