Popped in here a few times for breakfast while staying at the Wellington hotel. Quick service and good food and coffee. Ideal for a quick breakfast before going sight seeing.

Lovely cake but cost 40dollars for three slices, 2 coffees and a soft drink. THEN charged me 3.95 for a bottle of water that was 95c. LAUGHING as I left!!! Rip-off merchants to tourists. STAY AWAY
