A friend and I went for a Sunday morning brunch and as usual it was good. I've been going for years now and it never disappoints. From the freshly squeezed juices to the traditional breakfasts and the delicious pastries, it's always on point.

Great service and surroundings and really good food. I had a delicious chicken and avocado salad which was really nicely presented and was excellent value for money. Unfortunately I was too full after it to experience the gorgeous-looking pastries!
