Really nice, fair price and the best cappuccino I've had in a long time. Nice environment to sit in and interesting toilets

Ordered a club sandwich and orange juice , £ 11, orange came straight away £ 3, the club sandwich took an age, to there credit it was busy. Having asked after 15 mins were was my sandwich it came out , nice taste a bit dry even with the pesto. Cakes looked amazing.

The garage lounge is really nice and cosy I love the sofas it kind of makes you feel st home. I feel it is overpriced so I don't go there very often. The staff are friendly but I felt they were slow at taking my order your left standing at the counter twiddling your thumbs.

Have visited before and was impressed the first time. I had the standard cooked breakfast at £9. £3 for a single small pot of tea is a joke. For a £9 breakfast I would expect the tea to be included. Bacon was clearly not cooked to order, was dry and rubbery. The "chorizo" sausage is awful and clearly one of... More

Visiting for Victorius Festival, had really enjoyed this place on a previous occasion, so this was return visit. We had eaten a substantial breakfast earlier, which a little unfortunate as all the brunch style food looked superb, so had a delicious sandwich & cappuccino, my wife had pot of tea & very good chocolate brownie. Really good service & relaxing... More

Brunch was epic- had the standard meaty breakfast for £9 but swapped out the mushroom for sauted potatoes, and it was really really great. Massive portion consisting of battered cheese toast with bacon and fried egg on top, then usually mushroom, 2 tomatoes, chorizo sausage and a cup of beans. Like a fool I had a massive strawberry milkshake with... More

Stopped by for breakfast with family and there was a good atmosphere, especially during the busy Victorious festival weekend. Food was incredible and service was spot on. Highly recommend

I used to visit the garage lounge a lot when it first opened around 4 years ago because my sister worked there. It was still pricey back then but the cakes were worth it and we loved it in there. Due to her leaving we haven't visited in a long time and we went back a couple of days ago... More

Had heard great things about this cafe and finally had the opportunity to visit this evening. Really lovely interior and evening food menu looked appetising, we opted just for coffee & cake this time. The coffees and one cake came out in a reasonable time with the promise that the 2nd was just behind....about 15 minutes passed before I had... More

Popped in for breakfast during a short break in Portsmouth, must say I was well impressed with the breakfast/brunch choice, a little different & more imaginative than usual greasy spoon fare, I ordered the veggie breakfast , usually as a veggie you get the normal stuff minus the meat or a quote sausage thrown on, here I got perfectly poached...
