Lovely breakfast presented in an unusual and pleasing manner. They need to make it clear that orders are placed at the desk manned by the formidable lady, one sits there waiting for some service and no-one says anything. They should have table service, it's the only way to run a place like this in a way that makes people feel... More

Manager is arrogant and rude to customers and even worse to staff (in front of customers). Cake is awful. Everything overpriced. Atmosphere you could cut with a knife!

I very rarely drink, so it was nice when I found out there was a late night coffee shop opening. Went there a few times when newly opened. Very relaxed. Very expensive. Have been again since food being served. Went for lunch with my fiancee. We got soup and stayed for coffee. Almost £20 for only soup and coffee-tad pricey.... More

Recently took my mother here as she was visiting the city and wanted to go somewhere nice for breakfast. The woman behind the counter seemed very flustered with small pieces of paper flying around with everyone's orders on them. We ordered and was shocked at the price, very expensive for breakfast we thought! We then waited 40 minutes until we... More

Exhausted and hungry we decided to try the GarageLounge, also I was rather charmed by the interior. Was surprised that there is no table service when there is obviously enough staff about. Also had to pay on order, so put me off wanting to order say a dessert (cake) or a coffee afterwards. You are doing yourself no favours with... More

We had the tortilla and the eggy bread lunch - absolutely delicious, great service and lovely food. The coffee was also yummy. Although a bit full already we also had cake - oreo cheesecake and chocolate tart - both were delicious.

Came here with friends visiting from Wales, had the eggs florentine, was outstanding, the salmon was tasty just to look at, not too much, just right.

This is a beautifully decorated and unique cafe, and I'm happy to see they have stopped leaving cakes out in the open! It's great how the open till late and don't serve alcohol - there are not many places around that do this. Unfortunately I just don't think the food is worth what they charge - £5 for a slice...
