My first visit was just for a coffee. I had a cappuccino and my partner had a cafe latte. It was very good and came with a little sweet biscuit.
Only one size of cup at £2.70. I would have preferred a bigger cup to last while I read my paper but that’s just me. When I mentioned this to a member of staff on a return visit she explained that they thought having larger cups just made the coffee too milky.
I noticed that people who ordered espresso coffee had it served on a wooden tray with a glass of water continental style. Something I first noticed in Vienna and later in Stockholm and Munster.
The soup and bread were both tasty (as was the sponge cake which I had with a second cup of coffee)
Once again the service was great, the staff were very attentive and looked like they were enjoying their work. A very nice experience and I will definitely be going there again when I’m in town.
In fact I have, and taken my friends there to enjoy the coffee, cake and home-made ice cream, and they all agree how good it is. So I’ve retitled this post to reflect that I think it’s the “best little coffee bar in town” (with apologies to Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds).
As I said before, it’s only a few yards from Costa Coffee, Rhode Island Coffee, and the award-winning Bellissimo so has plenty of competition. But good luck!
