Excellent cafe. The manhatton take out seeded sandwhich is probably the best sandwhich on earth. This is my 3rd and i call in when passing. Service is 1st class. I need to try something different but this one is amazing.

Called by for lunch on a Saturday. My second visit but not as a family.
The place is made with A difference which makes you interested in the interior and layout.

Food = good portions and presented well. No delay with table service.

A regular place was seen for afternoon tea. Looked lovely with extra props making it inviting to each table or party. An idea for a special occasion or just a nice cuppa and cake.

Prices as expected.

Enjoyed a special afternoon with friends and family. We were made to feel that nothing was too much trouble. Enjoyed a mad hatter tea party with cocktails and everything was faultless. Lovely food and decor will return

Have to say this cafe is extremely quaint and shabby chic! Lovely decor and friendly staff.
Went for brunch with family and was spoilt for choice. The menu focuses mainly on afternoon tea and the variety around that, but does still offer a great menu for any time of the day. We stuck with the normal menu and was happily delighted with our order, even having it slightly catered for our needs. Staff very helpful.
Sadly we never got round to trying the desserts, as they look amazing, so will definitely have to go back and sample those!
Perfect for a girlie lunch out or for a special occasion afternoon tea!
