We've been to this cafe several times now and always enjoy the quirkiness of it. Nice food and very relaxing environment, inside or out. Thoroughly recommend.

An unexpected gem in Chesham. Great music on a Saturday evening. My favourite place to sit outside for a drink in the evening with blankets and hot rocks. Richard is an absolute star!
