Great coffee and slightly quirky surroundings. They also do a great range of herbal teas. Been here quite a few times over the years and I love it. It's definitely better than any chain!

The staff of this great little coffee house will probably cringe at my use of the cliché but I'd struggle to sum it up briefly without using the word 'bohaemian'. I'll add the words quirky and cosy, just to add insult to injury! What I...More

This is hands-down the best coffee and warmest welcome in Buckingham. The guys are always friendly and chatty, and ready to recommend coffees etc. The coffee shop itself is quirky and cosy and it's a great location opposite the Saturday flea market. Highly recommend.
