Hosted two large breakfast meetings here and have to say the staff were outstanding to ensure tables rearranged quickly, orders perfectly taken and supplied all together and 100% accurate. The poached eggs avo a personal favourite but everything was fresh hot and tasty. The designer...juice cocktails were amazing! My kettle of ceylon tea perfect. Have been coming for years during same convention and have never been disappointed. All staff worked with pride in what they provided. See you all next year!More

My husband and I went here for brunch on a Friday afternoon. As soon as we walked in we were greeted by smiling staff, offered a choice of tables and immediately Katia the owner and chef herself came over to welcome us and ask what...we would like to drink. The entire experience was fantastic and I was extremely impressed. We enjoyed everything we had from the homemade premium granola with our perfect cappuccino to the fresh avocado toast with poached eggs and my husbands traditional English breakfast. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a fresh tasty brunch or lunch in a great environment with friendly service.More

Came here for breakfast (yoghurt, granola, fruit) - took 15mins to arrive with just two other tables occupied... But the food was actually worth the wait. The coffee was good too. I would have given 5 stars had it not been for the very slow...service.More

The scrambled eggs are beyond delicious. Just the right consistency, and light. Coffee was amazing as well, and overall service from our waiter was exceptional. He was constantly smiling, which became so infectious. I would definitely return just to see that smile again :-)
