About us

We're a small, independent family-run coffee shop and restaurant in Chipping Sodbury, on the edge of the scenic Cotswolds.  If you enjoy a great cup of coffee or proper leaf tea in an old-fashioned china cup with a big slice of home-made cake, or a delicious home-made lunch with a glass of wine or some extraordinary real fruit juices, served in a friendly and relaxed environment by people who care about what they do, we're the place for you.

Our menu

We believe in freshness and quality.  We buy as many of our ingredients from local suppliers and producers as we can and wherever possible we support other local businesses by buying from them.  We use fresh high-quality ingredients even if they cost us more, because we believe you deserve an excellent meal and because we hope you'll come back again. 

Our menu changes regularly with daily and seasonal specials, and fresh meals to tempt and delight you.  Have a look at our current menu here.  We provide a good range of options for vegetarians and people who want gluten-free food.
