Breakfast was very good. Friendly atmosphere, very laid back. We had the ham quiche, meat burrito, veggie burrito, turkey egg bake. We all agreed, two thumbs up. We recommend it.

This place was wonderful. Homemade food and serious coffee is their motto. They delivered both. Moderately priced for the area. Exposed brick architecture and cozy atmosphere. Highly recommend this place if you want to get away from pub food.

Half block from the golden hotel. Very convenient for easy breakfast. We had quiche and very berry shortbread bar. Burrito looked good. Ate here 3 of 4 days while visiting.
