This is the cafe where JK Rowling famously wrote in the days before Harry Potter was published, and boy, is it cashing in on the connection – there are photos of Rowling on the wall, the toilet walls are densely scribbled with Potter-related graffiti, and you can barely move for tourists taking selfies. Still, it serves excellent coffee and tasty, home-made food at reasonable prices.
