    It's a Sunday afternoon, the staff hates there job accompanied with meh coffee. The tuna melt could have been much better as well. If I come back, I'll get tea and sit outside.

    The coffee is ok, the staff can be hit or miss. They don't offer refills on coffee. The best place to sit and work is upstairs.
