We stopped off for a quick coffee after a busy day. The coffee was excellent, the service was outstanding and the decor is eclectic. We will return for a meal.

Sat on their terrace today to enjoy the beautiful sunshine! There are umbrellas to shade you if you don't want to be in direct sunlight and plenty of seating inside too. A good selection of food and drink. I had the Morrocan Chicken Cous Cous Salad and my friend the Asian Beef Salad both were delicious.
