Came here today for the first time. It was very very close to closing time which we didn't realise but the staff allowed us to stay and order our food! (Which was outstanding!) We didn't feel rushed even when we were still sat eating nearly an hour past closing time!

Absolutely amazing small café, its unfortunate that they only open until 14:00! The smells of the food but you as you walk in and subdue you to stay! I would absolutely recommend to anyone to have breakfast or lunch here!

Thank Philip S
