“Bohemian Cult Café”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We went here for brunch and enjoyed what seemed to be "organic" food. The savoury muffin, with olives and feta cheese was delicious, as was the scone with dates and cinnamon. The original 50´s café chairs are great, not so sure about the graffiti design of the tables however. They´d run out of English breakfast tea (how is this possible in a café?), but the chai lattés were a good substitute. The locals obviously love the place and the queue was outside the door. Service is very friendly. Go there with an open mind and don´t be put off by the bohemian bit - it´s very good!

“Cool doesn't help me get a drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

This place is super cool. Great decor with a kind of old world underground vibe. A really nice place to have a drink before a film. However, on the evening we were there the service was worse than bad. The wait staff are very young and although there were plenty of them, they were having a great time chatting and messing about with each other while the customers waited in vain and the dirty dishes piled up. Deluxe is not cheap, so the service really was a disappointment. We ended up queuing with other frustrated customers at the bar while the wait staff huddled in groups with their backs to the customers. These kids are cool, but they're having a party and you're not invited.
