I opted for the chorizo flat bread pizza, skins and home made cookie, topped with a cappuccino – all for a fiver. Considering most places charge £2 + for a coffee this was excellent value. Food was lush and the “secret” garden is an absolute sun trap. Looking forward to my next visit. Thank you x

Brilliant wee cafe. Lovely home made food served in a gorgeous sun trap that is the back courtyard. Reasonably priced and friendly staff. Highly recommend!!
