The area around here is full of bars and cafés that all seem to do pretty well. We chose this one for no particular reason and were impressed by the standard of the snacks and coffee.

Good place.

Good food, slightly better value for the area restaurants. The staff was very friendly, quick service (though it wasn't very busy at the time of my visit)

This was a little disappointing! Service was absolutely shocking! Meals going to the wrong tables, drinks going to the wrong tables, staff going to customers asking what they had ordered again etc..... There was NO ordering system in place! The guy making the coffee etc was so stressed out... Wasn't a comfortable relaxing place to be. Maybe they were just short staffed, who knows. The food was ok but nothing to write home about, the hot chocolate was warm milk..... It was only good because we got it half price through our entertainment book.... Unlikely to go back!

My daughter and I called for a quick lunch and the Café was near to where we were to have a meeting. First impressions was good. The café itself was laid out well and they had a well stocked food counter. We both ordered smoked chicken Panini's. They were not appetising at all and in fact I left it on my plate. Once seated I realised that everything needs a good clean. The wine glasses hanging above the counter need to be washed and our table had not been wiped down properly. Most people there seemed to be taking advantage of the free wifi and drinking coffee, so I think this is more a café for that. I would not return
