Opposite GT Bank and looks like you are heading into a builder's yard, then opens out to a nice little garden space. Light and airy salon lounge with comfy seating. Meals served but more a relax, tea, coffee, cake place.

Just near the Senegambia Strip a quiet and good place for a proper coffee and a snack or cake. Good and friendly Service and prices reasonable. Lots of books to read or sit out in the garden and relax.

This is a great place to relax and have home made cakes and snacks, they also have a great selection of coffee.
They have a large selection of books which you can buy and hand made items the local community have made, they also hold film nights and have started ballet classes for children.
