Staff were very friendly and they provided us with a nice, light bite to eat for breakfast. Sat outside and enjoyed my breakfast with my coffee in the outdoor seating. Very pleasant.

Lovely little Independent, cosy & friendly little cafe. Delicious, hot lattes & the warm cinnamon buns, the perfect breakfast treat. As we’re from the UK it’s not something I would usually eat. Plenty of room to sit outside. The flower pots were very pretty touch.

Great place to stop off for breakfast. If you fancy something different from usual Starbucks or Mac Donald’s or Denny’s. Friendly staff. Fresh food and great teas and coffees. Oh and the smoothies were also divine

I️ wanted so much to like this place but the quiche took too long, was lukewarm and too salty, the coffee at the counter was also lukewarm and the fresh brewed decaf was flavorless. Sigh, maybe an off day....
