It's quite small inside, with 6 small tables along one side. Decor is modern/industrial, with tiled walls and exposed lightbulbs. Behind the counter are shelves with appealing-looking loaves of freshly baked bread.
Kat bought a takeaway latte (£2.75) and pain au chocolate (£2.50) on a Tuesday morning in December 2015. A couple of ready-made sandwiches were also available, presumably more are on offer at lunchtimes. There was no queue and only one customer sat at a table. Service was quick and friendly. The coffee was slightly larger and much stronger than the Pret equivalent, and 60p more expensive. The pastry was unusually salty — not sure if this was the intended result.
Kat's verdict: It's a nice enough space but a little on the expensive side.
Accessibility: Step-free to get in. Didn't check the toilets.
