Excellent breakfast

I'm still dreaming about their baked beans and excellent sourdough toast. I woke in my hotel hungry and in need of something very tasty, arrived and ate the most generous serve of breakfast and good coffee. Much appreciated.

Nice Eggs Benedict, and what looked like a very tasty Big Breakfast for my partner. The coffee was good, and we had a leisurely time, reading the paper, and generally having a relaxed Saturday morning. Just a note: go early, as it is very busy.

I went there with my husband and 15 month old baby and they didn't have high chairs, so we had to leave. We were disappointing as we were looking forward to try a new place and went there because of the good reviews this place had.

Nice coffee, nice very very fast food, good atmosphere but the staff lack the energy they don't look like they want to be there at all, I've been there about 50 times and is always great, but it isn't nice to receive a coffee without a smile at all!

Found this great cafe on my second day here. The menu is varied but even more pleasing for me is the coffee. Being a bit of a 'coffee snob' it is marvellous to be able to say this coffee is one of the best that I have ever had. For me it was on a par with the amazing Weka... More

What a great spot! The Breakfast menu offered the usual fare, but with a few twists. I quite often try the Eggs Benedict, but on offer here is the Eggs Montreal as another option with salmon, cream cheese and capers. Very nice, and beautifully presented on toasted sourdough with a smooth hollandaise. The coffee is from C4 and brewed well... More

Our hotel recommended us this lovely cafe and it turned out a perfect breakfast spot. The place felt very energetic inside, a nice blend of locals and tourists. It felt quite authentic and friendly. The breakfast dishes were delicious, and we especially enjoyed the savory muffins (we took some to go). Cosy, intimate, vibrant and very good food.

Good variety and selection in the cabinet. The salads looked so good I got a selection of three of them, with a vegetable fritata. Very tasty and was perfect lunch dinning. Staff were super friendly, and the service I got was very quick.
