Quality of products is good but service is unfortunately frustratingly poor. Toilets very dirty and staff unresponsive to customer needs. It's a shame as you come highly recommended..More

Hi there - I don't normally defend poor service, but this time I feel the need to step in on behalf of my great staff. After a long holiday season, everyone is feeling a bit worn down and may be a little slower than usual....More

This is a coffee shop that roasts its own beans. Small selection of cakes. Only had a cappuccino which was excellent.

Lovely warm spot with sun streaming in the windows while the wind blew outside. We just enjoyed a coffee and hubby bought beans to use at home - must be good as he is a bit of a coffee snob.

The ambiance is amazing and the Sumatra coffee to die for. Just what we needed after an amazing holiday in that part of the world

Weather you prefer a take away or a sit down and enjoy your coffee with a good book - like me- type of coffee, you will not settle for mediocre coffee after tasting Highlands Arabica Coffee. I personally enjoyed their Hazelnut latte & Vanilla cappuccino....More
