    I haven't lived in the GC for years now but I remember this place fondly. I'd literally go there daily because the coffee was DAMN GOOD. Haven't had a coffee that hit the same since. Unsure if the barista is the same guy from 2016 but he was a legend. He always remembered my order TO A TEE even though he'd serve countless people throughout his day. 1000/10. I'll be back if ever I'm in the GC again.

    Jacki the owner is absolutely incredible. She is so lovely and really creates a great atmosphere. The coffee is delicious and the honey and date loaf bread is amazing! I come here before every shift when I’m out this way

    I tried their flatwhite, and it tasted like water with very little coffee and milk. The barista wasn't having it as well, no smile whatsoever. Never coming back

    Cute little coffee shop with a friendly and professional feel. The chicken cheese avo toastie was yum. The coffee was good and the barista was pretty cute as well 😁. I will be back

    I enjoy a mocca and toasted Turkish bread for my morning breakfast, it was quite nice and I enjoyed the atmosphere.

    Great coffee and lovely atmosphere. The owner is always happy and helpful. The coffee is the best in the neighbourhood, hence why I go daily!

    Great coffee and fresh food, the owner who runs the cafe is always friendly. I work in the area and visit everyday for a coffee and a chat

    The iced coffee melted and the owner was rude to me. I'll never come back. She told other guests my story while I was there. Why should I pay and have such a tasteless coffee? I understand the tasteless coffee, but her attitude towards customers was good enough to ruin my day today.

    Already had a cup of coffee from another cafe and thought I'd get a bottle of water from Distractions. Walked in brought a bottle of water noticed the newspaper was there for everyone to read so when I grabbed the paper the lady the owner said to me you didn't get your coffee from our shop?? And I said yes I came to get a bottle of water. She was giving me evil looks and started to gossip about me to her worker making me feel very uncomfortable. So I thought I'd remove myself from there never ever again will I go to Distractions cafe there many good cafes in southport with good vibes!!!
