Lovely place to grab a coffee, have lunch, a piece of cake (love their carrot cake) or ice cream. It's always busy.
They have a little patio with heaters and blankets.

A great pop in place for just a coffee or more. Hot freshly brewed - always a winner

Excellent coffees and cakes as well as great selection of sandwiches and nibbles

Only complaint was disjointed service which at times was painfully slow and seemed to lack focus on client looking to be served (like us !).

Payment with card can be very slow as wifi painfully slow

For those that like gin, a very interesting selection to browse or buy

Very busy and cute little cafe which I visited for lunch. Staff were friendly enough and welcoming. Very minimal seats available but we managed to get a table for our lunch then left. Had a panini with salad and tasted delicious. Would return.

I LOVE Cognito.

I don't live in the city but whenever I need to meet someone for a catch up this is always my first suggestion.

The coffee is great, the piece of fudge served with the cup is such a nice touch! The selection of cakes and freshly made sandwiches and salad boxes are delicious and the staff are also very friendly and attentive.

The falafel paninis are SO GOOD.

I love the cosy informal atmosphere inside and also the handy seating area outside. The café makes great use of a small space - its the perfect meeting place. Its great to see this lovely café gets the support from locals it deserves.
