Came here to get breakfast to go one morning. Very busy but efficient. Ordered an iced americano, hame and egg sandwich and the smoked salmon sandwich. The salmon tasted mores like poached salmon. Didn’t really have a smoky flavor but still good. Try the cookies!

Love the avocado smash here: toast with avocado, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with salted sunflower seeds. Also have good breakfast sandwiches and smoothies. Expensive though- our bill for 6 for breakfast was 78.00
