Ordered raisin toast, it came with two generous blobs of butter which I normally wouldn’t have at home so I greedily spread every bit of it on the toast. My first bite and I realised it was unsalted butter!!! It tasted like cardboard. I requested...More

Clean cafe with friendly staff, a good selection on the menu to choose from & great coffee. It has a nice atmosphere and can accommodate for functions and also can provide catering packages. Give it a try.
