“Visited this beautiful, bright place today. As soon as I entered I was greeted by all the staff and was asked if I would like a drink and even got offered sweets lol. Was such a lovely warm welcome, which you don’t often get to see anymore. Staff were friendly and had such a warm nature. If you want that touch of old fashioned class then this is the place to go. Thank you to cara for the lovely art work on my hand, such a lovely, talented and friendly woman. Highly recommend 😌😌”

“Hi just a quick post to say thanks for my tattoo at very short notice, I took a clay mould of my dogs paw print, and from it Damian was able to make a template and cover an old tattoo and create a super tribute to my beloved pet, thanks very much, great staff coffee and atmosphere.”
