Rustique has been in business since the year 2000. It’s thrived not because it has the greatest coffee or greatest food or greatest anything, but because it’s so relaxing and welcoming. Even though the space is small, they don’t mind if you spend hours massaging your keypad or pick a book off the shelf and read it cover to cover. If you’re eating, order soup and quiche of the day, or a jacket potato. In good weather, the back garden is the place to be.
