I go here almost every week and never disappointed. I have tried most of their current menu and I can assure you everything on it is excellent. Staff is so friendly in this small and cosy place. Great for breakfast, lunch and of course brunch.

We were prompted to look for this place after seeing the history of it on TV, it's a real hidden gem, not far from George Sq but we've never seen it before. We will certainly make it a regular place to visit - the staff...More
