“Swing for me”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

I rarely give excellent ratings for restaraunts but this cafe is quirky and imaginative enough to make that rating for me. It's small but in such a space they fit in hammocks for individual time to swing and use your iPad, whilst charging your phone. The tables, for those that can't eat in a hammock are grounded in their own piece of ground complete with leaves. This sounds weird but you actually feel connected with your feet in the dirt. Their are magazines for those not carrying their own technology and some great music plays throughout. I'd recommend the sponge pancake with a huge dollop of cream, mine was the caramel (Yum!). Oh and yes you can eat in the hammocks.
