I have to say that I find everything I need in a coffee from this place, and like the small market attached to it also, has many good quality products that all the family loves.

Bustling cafe, responsive and friendly service . Great range of options for brunch which looked tasty and appealing.I kept it simple with scrambled eggs on toast which was adequate, my friends were more adventurous having the assorted stacks available. Coffee was excellent.

Nice staff and good service. Choices on menu. Coffee delivered promptly and very good. Food was lovely. Very reasonable prices. Nice and cosy warm inside on a winters day. Coffee roaster and can watch this being done. Will be going back.
