Such great coffee, a lovely roasted flavour We came 3 days in a row. Lovely service too as the staff remembered our orders. Well done!

Delicious food, lovely service! Bottomless mimosas and fluffy waffles! The chicken and waffles with white gravy is brilliant. Check out the little coffee shop at the bottom of the stairs too.

My husband greatly enjoyed his crabcake Benedict. The huevos rancheros were really good-just the right amount of spice. Their small cappuccino was quite large, I wonder if the large size come in bowls....very cute interior with different areas, plus some outdoor tables. Definitely a fun...More
