Five of us called here on a Sunday morning only wanting coffee. This was no problem - the staff were exceptionally friendly and attentive. The cakes looked superb - we are sure that they will have tasted just as good as they looked.

Staff was very friendly. They let us use the toliet before they knew we would buy anything. Cake and drinks were delicious. This cafe is also very clean. I will definitely come again.
