This is an excellent secondhand bookshop with coffee and food away from the main tourist area of St Helens. The bookshop is excellent, the people are very friendly and the food looks promising. Unfortunately, the coffee was served extremely hot, the milk was burnt and...More

Great coffee and drinks, excellent value and quality food to suit all occasions from Breakfast to Lunch and everything in between! Friendly and 'homely' atmosphere just off the 'main drag' with parking out the front. Just turn down the Pendrigh Place next to UNITED FUEL...More

St Helens has a limited selection of places to visit and so this is very welcome. The owner is particularly friendly and the coffee was excellent. If you're en route up the west coast and need a pit stop this is well worth a visit.
