Never pass this place by without stopping in for a coffee. Coffee is always great and the cabinet is always full of delicious treats. Store itself has an excellent selection of both staples and deli style foods. Lovely cool outdoor spaces for the summer months....More

Lots of value for money lunch options including a wide range of vegetarian options. I had the Nachos Grande which is too big for one person! Expect quite rustic conditions including wooden benches and the occasional spot of bird poop and wasp. Otherwise, lovely food.

Thanks Lynette, glad you enjoyed one of our classics :-) Our little bird and wasp friends are definitely a force to contend with in the garden!
