It's located at the back of the shop, between the women's shoes and men's shirts. Probably because it's slightly off the beaten track, it usually has seating, even on Saturday.
Like all branches of Caffe Nero, it sells the usual selection of teas, espresso-based coffees and blended ice drinks, along with panini, sandwiches, soup, pasta, cakes, american muffins and biscuits. Unlike most other branches of Caffe Nero, it accepts debit and credit cards (presumably on account of House of Fraser store policy). The coffee is above-average for a high-street chain.
The cafe also contains the only toilets your reviewer has managed to discover in that branch of House of Fraser.
