For all the chocoholics out there, the coffee shop now sells a range of quality chocolates including Chocolit by Loius Barnett. Louis supports several different animal organisations including the Orangutan Foundation.
The Cafe is dog friendly (ask about our 'sausages for dogs' loyalty card) and a great place to meet with friends, family or business colleagues. Celebrate a birthday, recover after scaling a mountain or a shopping trip. The decor of the cafe both inside and out is lively and imaginative with its creative wrought-iron artwork and unusual artefacts.
