“Great lovely cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

Very comfortable sitting upstairs above the London born owners fashion shop. We had milkshakes which were lovely and reasonably priced. The prices were lower than inside the fort and the cafe is next to the bus/train station. Food sounded good and reasonable too.

“Interesting”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

This place is sure, an interesting place, however a little bit on the pricey side, and to be honest you can't really call this a restaurant, it's more like a cafe!, service is rather slow, but I must admit the smoothies were wonderful!

“Great smoothies”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Didn't eat here but the blitzes and smoothies were a treat. The restaurant is under renovation and the new painted areas look great.

“Mmmmmm!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

Loved it, really fresh and tasty. Sometimes you need to eat something other than a curry.
Recommend the leek and cheese tart with tomato jam
