We went here for a light lunch when visiting Harrogate. The staff were very helpful and the coffee choice great. The Thai green curry soup my wife had was excellent. This place is definately worth finding

Why did I not try this place sooner! Great soup a lovely Portuguese egg custard tart and a decent coffee. This has just turned into our go to place when in town.

Called in for morning coffee, they suggested I try the Brazilian blend but just tasted burnt to me. Very expensive with no added value to justify it, serving the coffee on a wooden board is just pretentious.

If you had a problem it would have been nicer to speak to us rather than go on TripAdvisor. Your comments are ill-conceived and rude.

Its is not easy to get a really decent coffee in Harrogate. With a few notable exceptions most of it is mediocre to barely drinkable - the chains being the usual suspects. Why drink bitter, overheated coffee when you can actually drink stuff which has...More

Great coffee but at £6.30 for 2 capaccinos I think this place is in danger of pricing itself out if the market. Won’t be going again.More

You would have bought either 2 flat whites which would have come to £6 or 2 10oz coffees which would have come to £6.60, as we don't offer cappuccinos. These coffees contain a double shot of single origin coffee, ethically traded from a named smallholder...More

Their Standard take out is Small, and at £3.30 is a rip off. It needed a double shot otherwise I wouldn't have tasted it. Not hot, I had drank it by the end of the street. first and last time I will bother going in...More

Our coffees are single origin, named farm coffees that cost us a lot more to purchase than the chains who buy in bulk. Our coffees are also much more lightly roasted for a more complex flavour. Our milk is heated to the optimum temperature for...More

Popular place, deservedly so for its good coffee, and wide choice of quality teas, and knowledgeable staff. My flat white was pretty good which was a welcome relief after some frankly shocking coffee in some places around the UK.

Thank you for your comments. Along with most speciality coffee shops, our milk is heated to just below 60 degrees. Beyond this, the proteins and sugars in milk break down and the sweetness is lost. If you prefer a hotter drink you can mention this...More
