We have eaten here a few times for snacks while visiting one of my favorite independent bookstores. This was the first time for breakfast before heading home. Great coffee, the morning glory muffin was delicious and made a great leftover snack a few hours into the drive.

It only takes 3 or 4 people in line and the service at this place comes to a screetching halt.

They are the local coffee hangout, with amazing cookies, breakfast, and lunch. I am a coffee snob, so skip Starbucks and get your latte here. There coffee is always amazing. Free wifi and a huge room you can sit and eat or have a meeting in.

Fantastic mug of coffee, good food, and a comfortable place to relax. My favorites are the breakfast panini, "yellow submarine" (curry chicken salad) and a lemon wedge from the bakery department. Yum! A visit to The Spiral Cafe/ Northshire Bookstore is part of my regular weekend routine.

I ate here two times. It is located by a super good bookstore. Both sandwiches I had were good (BLT and a panini). Fast service, seat yourself or take away.

Popped in to the take away section and collected a sandwich for lunch. Large enough for 2 people to share. Very tasty, fast efficient service. Had a coffee and sat outside. An enjoyable half hour being amused watching American drivers trying to negotiate the roundabout!

Their baked goods are worth crawling for ten miles on bleeding hands and knees. Pumpkin cranberry pie and the carrot cake are both parties excellance.

This cafe is in the Northshire Bookstore. They have a wide variety of coffee and a huge choice of brownies, cheesecakes, cookies and other delights. We loved the lemon squares and the double chocolate brownies. They have a large dining area so nice place to hang out. They also have sandwiches and other light meals.

The cafe is attached to the Northshire Bookstore which itself is a place worth visiting. The cafe offers a place for coffee and tea. At lunch there is a section of quiche and such and some pastries during the day. There is a dining area with wifi.
