This cozy little coffee place had excellent coffee and the best savoury pies in the area. The pies come with a very tasty salad, and the deserts were so good I took some back home to share. They also have free WiFi. Great relaxing place.

We had French toast with blueberries and they were the hugest blueberries I’ve ever seen. Stuffed, that’s what we were at the finish. Good coffee too btw. Oh one minus/plus point is they don’t have trim milk, only the proper stuff. Just though I’d add...More
