Lets start with the good: Great range of teas and drinks in general Quirky furnishings Comforting ambience Even better if On busy days the sound could be dampened More of a range of gluten free products - especially at breakfast. Printed receipts available rather tahn the clunky handwritten sort The EBIs are me being picky. Go try it yourself

I visit the garage lounge often as I love it's querky vintage style and warm atmosphere. It's not the cheapest place to go for tea and cake but the slices are huge... I've yet to finish a whole slice!

Lovely place to have a cup of tea at the weekend. I have been here several times and will come back for sure. Cakes are nice even though a little bit overpriced. Recommend.

I was there at 7:30 am as I was looking for a quick breakfast before going to the office and what a treat! I had the best Egg Florentine and a perfectly balanced cappuccino.

Visited Here with a friend and found it overpriced and overhyped! Better cakes at the tenth hole for a fraction of the cost, and not made to feel welcome at all Wont return, don't get the excitement about this place at all
