A popular haunt with university students, this café makes everything from scratch every day, including organic breads, frittatas, croissants and irresistible daily specials.

Homemade chutneys and jams sit on the windowsills next to heads of garlic and fresh chilies, whilst pots of herbs grow quietly on tables. The blackboard slates are scrawled with the day’s specials, and freshly baked goods are immaculately displayed under bell jars. Local art is exhibited frequently and there is a courtyard if you fancy dining al fresco under crab apple trees.

Occupying a beautiful and historic building, designed by legendary architect Robert Lawson in 1885, this place is earthy, sunny, organic and just plain neat.
