We go here quite alot. The food is really high quality, however it also not cheap. Hot drinks are really nice and the whole place has a really nice feel about it as does Clifton itself. Only problem is the staff, hover around the tables...More

Ran in here as an escape from the rain! After a very wet visit to Clifton Bridge. Food was great and cosy little cafe atmosphere. Perfect lunch spot for a sandwich and a few hot options available.

Stopped off for a quick bite and cofe. Great atmosphere and quite busy, stop here rather than the caffe nero (or whatever it's called just up the road).
