A very nice place overall. The food is great, the service is great and the music selection is great too.

The space is a little bit small so it is usually full, but almost always there is enough space for a couple.

Prices are a little bit expensive side, but it is understandable given the small space.

Yes, it's always busy, and yes, the seating can be a little erratic - but the coffee is very good - and the little nibble of tablet a lovely touch. The sandwiches are very good quality and if you are eating in the side salads are generous and tasty. The homebakes are great too: the bakewell is particularly hard to resist. Just the thing to lift your spirits on a dreich day!

This is a popular venue for a coffee with friends, and having a nail bar within the premises optimises time constrained visits. We have been there twice this week for a coffee and snack, which have all been delicious.

Very good cafe for a great cup of coffee with a great selection of cakes, sandwiches, salads or ice cream. Great friendly staff who are always willing to help.
If visiting at lunchtime it can be a bit cramped between people sitting in and customers waiting for their takeaway sandwiches and coffees.
The coffee prices are very reasonable but the food can be on the pricey side especially if eating in.
The home made soup is great but there can always be a bit of a theme with having a hotness in the spices and for people like me it can leave me disappointed !!
All in all a very small, pricey and busy cafe but would thoroughly recommend paying it a visit
