I drink soya milk latte everywhere and I know it's not an easy one. This place made the most delicious soya latte I've had so far here in Bristol. My partner had a normal latte and it was also really good. Nice place, lovely music and very pleasant ambience....highly recommended

I ate several times here, all the food is prepared behind the tiny barrier/display cabinet. The food was good and the coffee was hot and strong enough although the "large" size mugs were not full enough. The service was good and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

I expected the Cafe to be over priced and dull inside, but in fact I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed serial coffees staying in there far longer than intended because it was so nice!

This cafe is a cozy little gem. It's only small but it is definitely a matter of quality over quantity. The wee short haired girl behind the counter is an absolute star; she is always going above and beyond the call of duty despite me being so picky. I am fast becoming a regular; I may bring my laptop along... More

The cafe is a great place to do some work if you're free in the daytime and want a change of scenery. The drinks menu has variety and the cafe often has promotional discounts running. The chairs are comfortable, it's not too noisy and there's free wi-fi making it a good place to sit down with a book or a... More
