Had a toasted cheese and tomato sandwich plus fruit scone. Coffee was good likewise toasted sandwich. Scone may have been slightly dry but adequate.

As weather so warm decided to have a drink, well lit and nicely decorated. Oh discovered Cathedral Buns, absolutely Yummy!! Like a Rock cake, Belgian bun combo. Not available all year round, shame. Prices really like anywhere else tourist based.
