Taking inspiration from the 1970s, Modaks is kitted out in a cool granny style. The retro décor includes formica tables and low couches with crocheted blankets in rainbow colours, which make this place a true blast from the past. Along with the vintage furniture, the interior boasts brick walls, fresh flowers, hundreds of old gig posters, a superb collection of magazines and a calming colour scheme.

Unconventional with minimum effort, Modaks is one of the most popular cafés in town. With its great, buzzy atmosphere, get cosy with a warming lunch of pizza, bagels, fries or salad. Free range bacon and eggs are used and ingredients are sourced locally where possible. There are excellent vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options available and the coffee is made from superb Coffee Supreme beans.
