Only had coffee-to-go, great coffee and friendly service. Interior is tastefully decorated, owners flair for art can be seen :-) and looks like a vibey place to sit and have your coffee fix as well.

One of few places that serve decent coffee. Popped in just before their closing time (4pm) and managed to still order a small lemon meringue. Great. Will be back again to sample some more/different eats.
