I have been on The Post Box many times with my social friends to have social conversation with coffee and cake. The decoration of books inside this cafe looks unique and impressive. It looks busy and nice place to spend couple of hours.

Came in for a coffee and breakfast and the service was great. Good coffee and a loyalty card system in place as well. Had salmon and eggs on toast which were lovely! Really easily accessible via bus or tram. Would definitely recommend!
