This is a very interesting place to spend a good half hour if you are keen on doing manual puzzles. However, you have to be aware of the interests of the people you are travelling with. If you have youngsters or people who are not puzzle solvers — they will be pulling you out of the shop within twenty minutes. Plan your visit with like minded intellects who will give you the time you want to stay seated & enjoy.

So it's 12am and we're still up trying to solve our Triple upright puzzle...what an awesome shop. You could actually spend the whole day there just trying to solve at least one puzzle so that you can prove you're still smart. Love the history of the shop.

We only popped in on our way passed... but wow we spent over an hour in here playing with some of the puzzles and chatting. We ended up buying 3 puzzles for ourselves and 1 for our daughter, also a few little memotos to take home (uk). Will be getting family to bring us more puzzles over when they come and visit.. highly recommend

Have visited this place almost after 10 years. I am really fond of complicated jigsaw puzzles and in my life I have anything like these. 3 dimensional multilayered puzzles are really a challenge.

This has been one of my all time favourite shopping pleasures. In a world of plastic, mass produced gifts this shop stands out as a one of a kind because the puzzles are the brainchild of a man who is passionate about what he does.
I bought my first puzzle from him nearly twenty years ago for my daughter and she still cherishes it.
Can recommend this place for one of a kind and unique gifts.

It is such a pleasure to meet people who remember us when we started 20+ years ago and to reminisce about 'days gone by'. We have built our business on quality and service. 'Local clientele' and repeat customers have always been a big part of our business. Thank you for the kind comments.

Very eager shop assistant who designs the puzzles himself.

He's got samples which you can spend hours playing around with to see if you can figure out.

Very entertaining and I would recommend a visit.

Shop specializing on different kind of puzzles. Even though I'm not that much into puzzles, I must give a lot credit for the extremely skilful handicraft, found esp in the 3D multilayer 'jigsaw puzzles'. Unique gift to bring home.

The place is next to Pot & Kettle, a highly recommended restaurant.
