I dropped in here for a coffee on a weekend break and made a mistake entering pin resulting in a very large tip that I didn't notice until a few days later. On contacting the company they refunded me immediately and apologized profusely when the error was all mine. Excellent customer service and good coffee too.

A large frozen lemonade isn't exactly cheap but they sure are tasty. The girl working here was very friendly. Free wi-fi.

Called in for lunch, I had a Tuna sandwich and a lovely cup of tea. My friend had Carrot cake and coffee. Smallish place for eating in but interesting, Also do take out.

What more can I ask for than a nice cup of Hot Apple Cider and a Blueberry Muffin, simple but so good. Not forgetting the free WiFi.

Dropped in not crowded and thought I would get a decent coffee . In the end just a step above Starbucks and the service was real average . Coffee made but not here you go it was just pushed down the counter ..... Just another "fast coffee shop "

Came here a couple of times for a hot chocolate. Pretty decent but nothing special. The staff always seemed to be talking to each other whilst serving customers which was a bit unprofessional. The cafe has free wifi which definitely came in handy a couple of times as I wasn't connected to a phone network.

North American coffee outside the big cities is generally poor and limited to the awful per drip stuff or Starbucks. So Second Cup is a revelation. Servers proper espresso based drinks in sensible portions....no 'vat' like mugs here! They have a great range of blends and interesting varieties from all over the world. They also do an excellent line is... More

Coffee here was fine but the customer service was not. I walked in with a Starbucks to go cup so I think perhaps they had me pegged as soon as I entered the store, but when I try to choose what size I wanted they just want their eyes and told me they had no idea what my cup size... More

It's hard to find good coffee in the US. Second Cup provided coffee made on milk in the Aussie style. Yeah!

I got a free drink here with my Second Cup Rewards, and it was delicious. The staff was helpful and quick, even with the confusion when my friend ordered a "medium dark roast with room"!
