I visited Aveda Cafe as a tourist in the area, and it was a wonderful visit. The cafe and its owner are loved by everyone who comes through the doors. I was surprised that no music was playing like in most cafes, but it seems so common for patrons to strike up conversation with the owner, music would distract from the socializing.

The owner also freely welcomes mail deliverers and others working outside to use the toilet, and she'll even give them a bottle of water.

The food was great at such a low price (5 pounds for a full English Breakfast), and the coffee as well.

Come by for an affordable meal, and stick around a while for some good conversation in a friendly, homey atmosphere.
