I went here for brunch with two friends. It was clearly very popular and very crowded but the service was quick. I ordered the roast beetroot and labneh with scrambled egg - it was delicious. The coffee was great - I'd highly recommend.

Nice ambience. Great service. Excellent food and excellent coffee. Aircon could have been a bit stronger, especially on a hot summer day. Otherwise - strongly recommended.

Delicious bullet proof coffee. I really enjoyed that. I couldn't find a meal on the menu that workroom so I ordered a bunch of sides (build your own) and it was probably the best breakfast I can remember in years. Staff there were great.
