The latte was of a good size and the tea was just right. It was nice that hot milk was given when requested. The two dairy free milks that they offered were soy and oat. A crusty and fresh baguette filled with ham, cheese and mustard was the toasted sandwich. Tasty fries accompanied the toastie. This made for a satisfying lunch,

The interior of the cafe is spacious and the decor has a spring like feel. It is kept clean. The staff are friendly and accommodating. They don’t rush the customers in any sort of a way.
