It's not the cheapest brunch, you pay for the quirk of the place but they do an alright veggie breakfast and a good eggs royale although I'd prefer the Hollandaise sharper. Service was a little slow, my boyfriend had almost finished his meal before I got mine and my toast was cold when it arrived. Still a very tasty breakfast,... More

Very stylish converted church turned cafe. The cool decor has changed since my last visit and is super cute. It is self service and for the first time visitor is a but odd as noone is there to greet you or give you menus so you have to go and get them yourself. There is plenty of choice for breakfast...

This is a very popular venue so expect a short wait to be seated. The menu is good a breakfast time. Everything from a full English to muesli is available. I recommend the Avacado Smash, the porridge or the vegetarian breakfast. Love atmosphere and attentive staff,

Came here on a Monday lunch time and had a selection of hot drinks, sandwiches and cakes. Food and drinks were great quality (very generous portions) and reasonably priced. Plenty of choice also. An unusual place with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Makes a change to the usual high street chains. Would highly recommend a visit.

Family of 4 visited for Sunday breakfast. Various dishes including full English, vegetarian and avocado mash. All extremely well prepared, tasty and filling potions. Great atmosphere too. Would have been 5 except for the long wait for our food.

Booked a table for late breakfast , early lunch ! Smoothies were bursting with flavour - portions generous and the burger looked so good (major food envy ! ) - that said Brie and chorizo toastie was excellent - and they are dog friendly. Great staff , great place and reasonable prices - will be back
