Stopped by on a reccomendation. Small, cute shop, amazing smell to the cakes, and the flat white was smooth, tasty and very well made. Good music choice at a sensible volume too. Worth a stop!

a really pettite cafe in the heart of town. If you are lucky enough to find a seat make sure you try one of the handmade deserts apart from your coffee!!! Loved it and definitely going back

Me and my partner are regulars at this superb coffee shop. Altogether our favourite place in Bournemouth. Great atmosphere, decorated beautifully, amazing coffee and toasties and very friendly staff. And they play good music too.

Thank you for your wonderful review! We do wish we had more space...but being tiny is a big part of our strategy, as cheap rent allows us to compete with the chains around and manyain a central-ish location! Hopefully soon we will be able to...More
