Great coffee, good food, shame about the location and people walking through, really cold and drafty in winter, good service.

I'm a regular customer here. Always have the Latte in a glass. Their coffee is very good, full flavour, not weak and watered down like some places. Hasn't been hot enough on the rare occasion but does the trick. Can get busy there as well. Service is ok, nice atmosphere.

First visit:

Had a takeaway short black. Good.

Second visit:

Had a large takeaway cappuccino and a slice of chocolate mud cake.

The cappuccino was OK; I've had better, but it wasn't bad.

The cake was good, although it wasn't really sticky and chocolatey enough to be called "mud cake". It was more like chocolate sponge with chocolate cream in the middle and chocolate icing on top.
