“Want good service? Don't come here! ”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Have previously bought food here but never sat in the cafe for a coffee! Waited for 15 minutes before someone bothered to come and take our order. The blonde waitress seemed most disinterested when we asked her if we could order. We even asked if she would take the order of the gentleman next to us who was also waiting with his daughter. Lots of staff all running around and not doing very much! It was about as badly organised as a restaurant in India!

“Very pricey but good quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

They make good coffee there and it is a nice place to break away from the Portobello market crowds, albeit rather pricey. There is a small sit in section and a grocery section to buy stuff to go. I bought some Babaganoush there. Had never had of it before until I saw it there and curiosity got the best of me. Absolutely divine with pitta bread!!

“Overpriced but good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012 via mobile

Very appealing food, from sandwiches pizzas hot snacks , salads , cakes , a posh Deli all packaged for takeaway. Also sells meals aswell.
Quite over priced for your average person but good quality compared to other cafe delis in street where it's all brought in.
