Lovely Sunday lounge in the sun with a great coffee. Staff were very friendly and attentive. All the food looked delicious. Next time I'm in Hamilton I will definitely be there for breakfast.

I was there for breakfast with a group of friends. Food was great. A comfortable place to chat and have meals. I love their hot chocoloate and aglio olio. Definitely will return again
