Good breakfast and coffee

Great place for breakfast / brunch. We went mid-week, it was fairly quiet but still a nice atmosphere. The coffee was good and the pancakes were great - very sweet but I enjoyed every mouthful! Food is tasty and well presented. Have eaten here several times and never been disappointed.

We had a booking for 8pm and were made to wait for a table when we arrived. The menu was great looking but it took ages for anyone to come over and take our order. The gnocci starter was pretty average, great size but no flavour at all. It was such a busy night but we only counted 3 wait... More

Made a booking here as we wanted to do the Wellington on a plate and meal was very nice but after main meal was taken away there was no further service - we were not asked if we wanted another wine or to see the dessert menu. Had to hail down a waitress to order dessert and it was obvious... More

The food was okay. Coffee not so flash. I would be inclined to not post a review odd such an establishment normally but the service deserves a comment. I got my food promptly but without utensils. Took a while to get any ones attention. My wife's food arrived well after mine. The service was a bit surly even when it... More

We came here for brunch on a Sunday morning and the service was slow. We had to find someone to take our order, despite there being lots of staff no one seemed to be allocated tables to look after. We waited for 40 mins for our food to arrive and when it arrived it was only luke warm. Luke warm... More

We chose this cafe because it looked busy and surely everyone else was there for a reason. they were there for the food. The menu was great lots of options that we really liked the sound of. However we waited almost an hour for our food. When it arrived it was great. But they do need to work on processing... More
