A great place to treat yourself to a delicious cake and coffee or one of Wally's very tasty open sandwiches. Soup is always available if you don't want to spend too much. In the summer they have some really delicious ice-creams in the shop downstairs...More

This Kaffeehaus is small and a little bit cramped. It's accessed by a flight of stairs and the toilet is at the foot of the stairs in the delicatessen. A friend and I met here for lunch. For dessert I ordered apple tarte. I was...More

I had stopped I'm for a quick bite before the rugby Judgement Day matches. It was my first after hearing from friends how good it was. I can only agree with them, the Kaffeehaus made a perfect americano and roasted red pepper, chorizo, chicken and...More

Wonderful deli, wish we hadn't been travelling home by train or had a cool box so we could have taken some of the fresh goods home. Lovely cafe upstairs, attentive staff, good choice, but as we were booked elsewhere for a meal later didn't eat....More

I love this café! But don't always think of it when I'm looking for somewhere to eat in town because it's hidden away above the delicatessen shop. I'm always torn when it comes to choosing from the menu because there are so many different things...More

Lovely little coffee shop hidden upstairs in Wally's Deli. It's - as an estate agent would say - compact and bijou, but the coffee is excellent and the platters / sandwiches are a great lunch option. Service is a little variable. Last few times I've...More
