We visited the cafe after hearing about it on the TV. Ordered a pot of tea for 2, and a latte. Also ordered two toasted tea cakes with butter & jam. Delightful little deli/Cafe/shop. Good variety on the menu & homemade cakes.

I had seen positive reviews, so decided to try it on our way home. Very good coffee, enjoyed in their courtyard. The menus on their blackboard looked inviting, so next time we visit the area, we will definitely stop for more than just a drink.

This place is a must visit for fantastic coffee and the most amazing cheese. A definite visit if you’re in the area, especially if you’re out on the bike.
