Good lunches and cakes. Always busy ... sometimes understaffed, but still friendly and helpfull. Nice selection of British cakes. In the heart of town with good views on the 'hustle and bustle' of the town.

Enjoyed a very nicely served, lovely sandwich lunch. Only one young lady serving but she was extremely pleasant and we did not have to wait too long even though she was very busy.
