Stumbled across this amazing local deli a few weeks ago and finally managed to fit in a visit. Feeling really weary this morning the combination of coffee and doughnuts was just what I needed and boy did De Beauvoir deliver.

I ordered a soya flat white, which is honestly one of the best I've ever had. Short and strong, and made using Monmouth coffee. At 2.80, not the cheapest, but well worth...more

5 stars for pastries!! If you live anywhere in the area, it's a treat to have such fresh croissants, muffins and bread right around the corner.

- There is nice outdoor seating along...more
