  • StarBucks: At the back of Borders bookshop, Very expensive, not that nice. Beales, M&S, BHS: MMM My fave! Old peoples shops have good cafes, with good tea. Not the place to go if you want to meet new people though, unless you're old! Can't name it, But it is in the arcade with TKMAXX: It's really nice! Sells fantastic pasties! Even a curry one?! ShakeAway: All those trendies can be seen clutching a stripy cup. It's pretty cool. My personal fave is the Weetabix milkshake.

  • Don't go to Obscura, the waitress'es look like they were dug up that morning, warmed in their microwave, and are radio controlled. I've never seen people as miserable as this, + you wait ages for your order, I've walked out of here sooooo many times after waiting more than 30mins for a cup of tea. Go to Pilot in the high street, has an upstairs cafe, really cheap, nicely decorated, with a big tv playing MTV. A great place
