When majority of nice cafes are very centralised in the centre of the city it's very nice to have a local cafe which is vibey, serves delicious food, has a friendly and relaxed staff and gives more character to the area. Veggie wrap is amazing!...More

We had the make-your-own-salad: superb, and the chicken wrap - very filling. Carrot cake was good too, service good and venue great. Would definitely go there again - prices reasonable as well.
