I mean literally beautiful food. I should have taken a photo of the fish of the day I had, it was so beautifully presented. It was also delicious, as were the fish and chips also eaten at our table, and the haloumi starter. The pineapple lumps with the affogato were a touch of genius.

Offers indoor and outdoor seating in a street closed to vehicles. No hassles service delivers great coffee quickly and has a variety tasty snacks for every occasion. Must dine here sometime as I spotted steak on the dinner menu.

Plum is OK for a brunch or a lunch. Attentive staff and friendly, so that was a nice positive. Busy place and it seemed popular. Meals and coffee came out quickly though, so again quite good. We got the burgers and pancakes. Pancakes were nice. Burgers hoo-hum. Frozen beef patties most likely, as they were tough to eat. Just a... More

We went there for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The restaurant was not busy and we got seated straight away. We ordered a pork belly salad and a calamari salad, they were both so delicious!!! The pork belly salad came with some candied walnuts and some lovely dressing, the crunchiness of the pork belly , some apple, some feta cheese,... More

My friend and I visited Plum Cafe for brunch on Thursday last week. The service was casual but polite and unobtrusive, the waiter that helped us was very helpful (especially when we spilled some coffee). The food and coffee was excellent, with the highlight being the macaroons (simply to die for!). The decor is comfortable and warm, which is exactly... More

Popped in for quick breakfast with a friend and it was great, they were fairly busy but breakfast was freshly prepared and a good selection, so a little wait was definitely worth it, the grumpy old waiter must be a fixed character at the Plum, very dramatic it's cliche. Good coffee and a great vibe to the place, we will... More
