Lovely atmosphere!!

Love the 50's style and friendly atmosphere here!! Just by the antiques market in Angel it's a great place to hide away with a milkshake to cure a tired head from the night before :-)

My friend and I shared a massive wodge of key lime pie (big, wobbly meringue and gooey lime centre) and sodas here. It was delicious. The place has a great 50s vibe. Perfect after a trawl round the vintage shops in Camden Passage.

I often go there when I am in the mood for some fun music and ambiance. The milk shakes are just as good they look and the cupcakes are delicious. Must try red velvet cupcake on a Sunday morning around Christmas with hot coffee, preferably while sitting outside, trust me you will love it!

What a great place, crammed with 50's style, such fun and a real switch from the washed wood rustic that is everywhere else. Scrum my hotdog, no fuss, no frills, perfect.

Went here with a group of friends, it's small but perfectly formed. We all had different flavours of milkshakes and all devoured them, delicious. Love the 50s vibe and the staff were very friendly and clearly had a passion for the 50s. Definitely would recommend!

Great milkshakes (I had to follow my favourite stawberry with a toffee & caramel!) and savoury/sweet snacks all done well. Great 50s American theme and helpful service made this a very pleasant lunch! Would definitely recommend.

I had to have the "Elvis shake" (what else could I go for?!!) it consisted of peanut butter, banana and caramel, was really nice but for... More

Went with a friend and had fantastic thick milk shakes outside as it was actually sunny. The whole style and decor are of the fifties, and the really friendly staff wear retro clothes, which you can see is by choice and not a uniform. Inside a T.V. was showing a black and white European film, completely in keeping with the... More

A real gem of a place. Fabulous coffee, cupcakes...and ice-cream! You can enjoy the fabulous decor and lap up the atmosphere, while being served by the most stylish and friendly staff. We loved it!
