Great Nachos!!!!!!!

So, there was nothing soulfood about this cafe, but the nachos were delicious!!!!!!! We all ordered a small, but I now wish I had ordered a large. The chips were fresh (as were all the incredients) and the chicken was perfectly seasoned.

If it's sunny, this is a fairly good place to have a beer outside. It's cheap and cheerful and the food is good enough for what you pay. When I was there, there was suddenly a weather alarm and everyone rushed inside which led to a fair amount of confusion. The staff dealt with it well and we spent an... More

The guy running this place is fantastic. Great sense of humour! These were the best nachos I have had in a long time. They serve the best chips and put on tons of cheese and toppings. We ordered the large nachos for 13.50. It is a hopping place, we were walking by looking for a place to eat for our... More

RUDE RUDE RUDE! Don't order fish thinking that you're going to get a vegetarian salad with it. When they brought out the meal my friend (visiting from Australia) explained that she couldn't eat the salad with meat in it. The waitress tried to make her feel guilty, saying that she'd have to throw the food away, instead of providing good... More

The first time I tried this place, my husband and I had to wait so long before anyone approached us that we went somewhere else. The second time, I had some nice fresh mint tea and sat outside with a friend. It was nice to watch the people go by. The third time I went there, it was about a... More

Nice bar that is worth the walk past all the other Shisha places to get to. The sharing platters are great value and it's got great draught beers
