Certainly didn't give myself enough time to browse all departments. A sweet little cafe upstairs, but you may need to pal up with others to fit in.

As if the maze of books spiraling up several floors weren't cute enough the hidden doorway revealing the cafe was brilliant.
Vegan/Veggie delights, hearty soups Lots of tasty treats to be had along with a friendly welcome and a tempting mug of coffee.

Visited the cafe today ordered the homity pie which came with salad. Wonderful and tasty . the staff were very attentive throughout. Lots of people in the cafe with us and all had food . pity the cafe isn't bigger as people were coming to eat and drink and no seats available.

An amazing book shop tucked up a side street. Three floors of books to browse, enjoy a meal or coffee and cake. Perfect !

It is a fantastic book shop with a nice little cafe but the highlight for me was being able to sit in a comfy chair and look at prospective purchasers . I bought far more books because I was able to have a good look at them first! A lovely experience I will be back.
