An outside cafe in a sort of tent. Very overpriced for what it is. The name is apt, Miserable, I felt that it was a miserable place.

Bitter, Burnt flavour Americano. Poor standard of knowledge displayed by Barista. despite being outside, the vile stench of tobacco smoke pervades

an outdoor cafe under a canopy, one of the only places around which still has a smoking section where you can eat. They do a mean sandwich toastie. Coffee and teas average

I found this place very expensive and I was surrounded by smokers which was not acceptable. People were walking past smoking which was adding insult to injury as the seating area is outside

Lovely coffee bar serving delicious cake and paninis (the brie and sundried tomato is my favourite!). Perfectly located in the main shopping precinct so a great spot to sit and watch the world go by. Very friendly staff and good service

This small coffee bar offers good cakes, coffee and sandwiches in a covered outside setting. Quirky it is - but the food is not. The place is frequented by locals -- those of a 'certain' age who value a place to sit, chat with friends, enjoy a cup of coffee and a treat of cake. it's that kind of place.

lovely little cafe in the town center serves good coffee and pastries even supplies a throw to keep you warm as the cafe is partly covered and it does get pretty cold in March

Lovely to sit and watch the world go by, and throws provided on every chair in case it gets cold, among the shops

Lost count the times I have drank cappuccino in this little gem of a bar. Our path from the main car park takes us directly to it, so it's ideal if you can brave the winter cold. It's under canvas with heating. I love it. Provides coffee teas snacks and good selection of cakes pasties etc. Always our first stop... More 

Thank Kenneth A
