Yes it was a pretty coffee, but also tasted great & perfect temp. Breakfast was really tasty, smoked salmon bagel was generously full & poached eggs on the benny perfectly runny.

Friendly staff who where under the pump. Had a very long wait for 2 cappuccinos, worth the wait though as they tasted great.

So we wanted breakfast, had yo ask do we take a seat?? As no greeting. No service to our table after being patient and waiting 20 minutes, so we left, nor even an acknowledgment. Need to pick up your game, terrible.

Excellent spot to meet friends for coffee, lots of delicious treats to tempt you too. The hot chocolate is worth trying.

Came here with a large group (8 people) on a Sunday morning. They were very accommodating and tried their best to get our food out. We had a good time. Breakfast was very reasonably priced and delicious. Coffees were good.
