Just stopped for a coffee and cake after shopping. The decor is very luxurious and there is a lovely view of the river. Definitely a great spot for a pick me up when shopping.

This used to be my favorite cafe because of the beautiful outdoor seating but they changed the menu and I ended up having two mediocre salads. The wrap I had a different time was good but it was so elaborate, like it was trying to...More

Stepped in out of the rain recently, and decided to chance having lunch in this coffee shop over looking the river. Have previously only had coffee. The food sadly didn't live up to the surroundings though. We won't be back.

I was able to sit outside on their large deck and relax while reading a book. This setting was very unexpected. It is located on a river lines with flowers. The wait staff was lovely and the overall experience was great!
