We had a nice coffee, but the food was of let down. Eggs Benedict with bacon wasn't too bad, but the vegetarian version wasn't edible. Potato rosti old and dry, beans with tomato heated and over dried. Presentation not appetizing. Service, some waiters were cool and friendly, but some of them were not nice at all. Plus, the glasses for... More

We come here quite a lot for coffee shop meetings or if I am driving past might pop in for a takeaway. Only thing is it can be a little noisy because its such a big place and there is no carpet or absorbent surfaces to reduce the noise. The coffee co-op was started up by one of the local... More

I probably wouldn't go after school drop off times as it seems to be a bit of a kindergarten in the mornings. sometimes hard to get a seat but it has great atmosphere, and fabulous food. I tend to drive past and if its really busy I keep going, but... More
