Some really nice pieces in here although you have to keep going in as the stock turns quickly, if you like something buy it straight away would be my advice. Nice coffee shop

Really superb Illy Coffee, and tasty snacks, clean and tidy, airy, spacious, an excellent Tearoom. Please note I do say Tearoom, as if you want a more extensive Menu choice you need to go next door into the WaxWorks Café/Restaurant.
