I often drop in yo this cafe for a coffee and business catch up, and sometimes for lunch as well.

I had a coffee and catch up today, and the staff were friendly and helpful as always. Our coffee and tea were nice, and we had a good table to sit at (There's also outdoor seating).

The food I've had previously when I've stayed for lunch has always been good.

It can, however, be a bit packed at times and a bit impersonal.

I'll continue to drop in.

Visited here mid February, tried many restaurants and nothing seemed to please me. We were just on our way home when we saw this little number, what a delight it was! Enjoyed perfectly made lattes and yummy veggie breakfast. Such a lovely atmosphere and staff were ever so friendly - smiles all round! Thanks very much would recommend to anyone!

Situated by the Arts Centre and Art Gallery, with inside and outside seating, limited m3nu but we just fancied “blue cod and chips”, super quality, large portion and really tasty.
Would recommend and revisit

We stopped here for a drink this afternoon, it was half full of people having meetings. I ordered tea and was disappointed to have it served with a glass mug which looks cheap. The coffee on other tables was served in cups, why not the tea. It was also poor quality.

Came in for lunch when walking around town. This has a good location, and great outside seating area. Very good service too. The menu didn’t have a vegan option, but there was no trouble in removing the bacon and aioli from their BLAT bagel; but it would have been nice if the price reduced with the removal of two items.
My partner had the fish and chips which he said were really good. We both wanted cider to drink, which was not available, so settled for a beer and a glass of wine. I had a glass of the Kopiko Bay pinot gris which was fantastic.
Over all, a really good place to stop for lunch, just disappointing there was no dedicated vegan option on the menu. And the menu in store was different from the online version, but not by much.
