There's a lovely warmth within the space. It emanates from the beautiful red brick walls and original timber floors, the rich ochre shades of the artwork. It's been open just a week or two when Miss Morag visits, but owner Kristian and his mum Bev are already welcoming customers by name, and preparing coffee orders from memory.
There's also a simple menu of brunchy fare including the usual array of sweet and savoury toast options, toasted sandwiches, muesli, and a rather intriguing-sounding smoked trout pate made by Bev. The pate will have to wait for another day since MM was dining with the fish-hating Mr MM. (Ordering fish can result a non-sharing scenario.)
MM was lucky enough to visit on a Sunday morning, when an African gospel band practises in the theatre. The beautiful music drifts into the cafe evoking memories of a visit to a Harlem church service during a New York trip. MM is unsure whether it's the effect of that third fantastic latte, or the gospel music or perhaps a combination of the two, but she certainly leaves The Little Prince with a happier heart.
How about you dear readers? Do you have a coffee spot that offers not only fantastic coffee, but something of a unique experience?
