I enjoyed my cappuccino and Millionaire shortbread very much. Coffee was smooth and the shortbread was a really good chocolate and caramel mix. Service was good, the decor is eclectic and overall I left a happy man.

Like a previous visitor, we have visited this establishment over the years. However, this year was mega disappointing. The place staff and one good good have deprecated. The once pleasant relaxed atmosphere and popularity appears to have diminished.
