One reviewer wrote: "First time to Winchester and checked on TA what places were good for coffee. Look no more, this is it. Perfect flat white coffee. Really nice ambience with many framed prints available to buy. Revisited later in the afternoon for a decaf flat white and shared an amazing pear and chocolate tart, (should have ordered two as they were delish)."
