Went twice here on a weekend. Decent range of sandwhiches etc for breakfast / lunch and nice staff. Decor etc really nice and it is independent and not part of a chain.

Popped in here when in the city centre as some friends had mentioned this place to us. Superb is all I can say, lovely coffee, sandwich and a cake, hubby tried the soup and was more than impressed. Definitely coming back again soon!

Was walking into town after dropping a friend off at the hospital, looking for breakfast, saw this cafe and decided to visit. Decent cup of coffee, Cumberland sausage bun ok but could have been a touch more tasty but then I like a spicy sausage. I will certainly call again, maybe try something different.

Ordered some lunch and hot drinks after our very chilly walking tour through the town. My friend tried the fishfinger ciabatta, the real hot chocolate and cookie dough caramel slice which she thought was delicious! I ordered the bacon, brie and cranberry ciabatta, tea and lemon drizzle cake which was also delicious. Girls that served us were very accomdating, short wait for food and drinks, came out very presentable and hot, and more importantly were within a decent price range - did help I had 20% off with my Theatre Royal card. Well placed opposite the Art Gallery and by the Theatre can imagine its very popular, certainly was busy when we were in, of course the outside area was cordoned off due to the freezing snowy weather. Definitely recommend and will sure to return before I head home

This is the first time I've had to leave such feedback but then it is the first time I've encountered this in a cafe / eatery.

We ordered a coffee and then requested if our baby's milk could be heated up. We were told they have no facilities to heat a milk bottle, which is very odd as they are a cafe. We suggested alternatives but the guy was adamant that it could not be done.

So just be aware that if you are looking for a place to heat up some milk, look for another cafe!
