Was longing for a good coffee and a piece of cake after a long morning and an expected to be no shorter afternoon. Very warm atmosphere, lovely coffee, wonderful display of a large variety of cakes. Tried the peanut butter cake, amazing. Not cheap though but worth the money. Staff is very friendly, a cafe very suited for professionals seeking time to do some work while enjoying warm and tasty treat.

Great coffee, great cakes! and a really friendly staff. Its a great place to grab a coffee on the run, warm up with coffee and porridge and hide from the cold. hold an impromptu meeting or just hang out.

My friends and I often came here in the mornings for breakfast or lunch when we were working in Croydon. The staff are all very welcoming, friendly and happy to have a chat and the breakfasts are delicious, fresh and tasty. The fresh juices are great too. When you’re in the area and just want somewhere to sit down while you grab a bite to eat this place offers a much better alternative to the usual high street chains where the staff just ignore you or want you out the door with your laptops!

My favourite coffee shop in Croydon by far. Very relaxed, chill staff, and vegan/dairy free friendly food, drinks and cakes. Always feels warm and very welcoming, while still managing to be cool.
