Excellent cup of chai (with cashew milk) and a long black this morning. Love that the emphasis is on organic fairtrade small producers that grow for quality rather than quantity. They also offer different varieties of non-dairy milk -- rice, coconut, almond, cashew. As a...More

Dropped in here for a mid morning coffee. We were pleasantly surprised at the amount of older people having a coffee and a catch up. A no rush coffee shop with pastries as an additional extra. Quick friendly service.
