Stopped for a coffee and cake only hence the four stars but full menu looks very inviting. We love the atmosphere and above all the space. We will definitely return for a meal.

The food was pretty good too. We were on a vegetarian gluten free menu and there was enough choice to keep us happy. It was a dark rainy day so it seemed pretty dark inside the cafe. Would happily come back here though.
