This is a popular spot in a well run craft shopping venue. I have visited many times over the years. The friendly staff provide good service and offer a limited range of food with the usual range of coffees and teas. I recommend the soups.

Lovely varied selection of shops to look round with a varied price selection. Gorgeous jewellery, had a hard time not buying a lot. Cafe was reasonably priced with a nice atmosphere. Great chance to support a local charity. Thank you
