“This new, independent coffee shop is definitely worth a visit. Grab a pick-me-up at this postage stamp-sized corner cafe, where you’ll find a few tables and chairs scattered out the front and a marvellous selection of freshly baked goods to go with your barista-brewed coffee. The cakes and sandwiches are amazing, with some tasty vegan options too! ”
