This place always looks busy and has queues. However, the staff work hard and tables turn over quite quickly so you don't have to wait long. The atmosphere is great and there are a good range of coffees. The hot chocolate is served at a perfect drinking temperature and it was excellent. The cakes all looked amazing so it was..

This is a super cute little place with great coffee drinks and food. They offer breakfast sandwiches all day, either on a bagel or croissant, that are absolutely delicious. I've had great coffee, iced coffee, lattes, and chai tea here. There are lots of places to sit and people love to come here to study, work, etc.

This is the best cafe in Nottingham. The aroma as you enter the coffee shop and the quality of the coffee and whole leaf tea is fantastic! They also have great muffins and cakes to go with the hot drinks- would highly recommend!
