    Funky coffee shop with awkward wooden furniture. One barista was particularly rude but everyone else was friendly.

    It's friendly and trendy. Very wooden inferior. It has WiFi, when it didn't work they put me on the upstairs one.

    No wifi, but great smoothies, bagels and paninis. Good for grabbing a bite but can get pretty busy and noisy, so not one for relaxing.

    Very chilled out coffee house with bare stone walls and a rustic wooden interior. Coffee is good and bagels are recommended.

    Takeaway orders are for 'taking away' and not to be consumed in shop. Don't forget to get your freebie with a large takeaway coffee.
