Came here for a business lunch , our waitress could've smiled a bit but the other male waiters or manager was great. Food was served quickly and I ordered the cassoulet. My colleague had the truffle eggs and you can smell the truffle as soon as you walk in. Great for breakfast

We had such a great experience the 1st time we went there that 2 days later we went back. The food was exquisite, the service super friendly. The pastries were to die for. Can t wait to go back again.....

Walked pass and saw a lot of people going in so had to see what the fuss was. Staff are very nice and service is good. Pull pork was ok but would have though it would be better. Nice place to chill and have a coffee and cake maybe.

Stopped by one morning after hearing great things about this place. We were excited about trying the filtered coffee too. The atmosphere inside is beautiful. Menu is unique and delectable. We saw afterwards that the menu said we could not split bills. When we asked if they could for us since nobody else was around that morning they refused. Was... More

We sat outside in the secluded courtyard and had a coffee and an orange with passion fruit juice. It was peaceful and enjoyable.

Enjoyed the duck burger and pulled pork. Must haves if you go. Nice hot chocolate as well. Eggs were average though. Wait was quite long. About 20-40 minutes. Service was attentive and friendly. Worth a visit.

Not a huge menu selection and indeed a very limited vegetarian option. Menu is strictly non changeable. Have had shakshuka elsewhere where there's always a vegetarian option as well as a non vegetarian option. Here there's too much chorizo in a small dish. You cannot have it without chorizo. The salmon omelet was nice. Friendly staff. Came for brunch on... More

Not your typical eggs and bacon place for breakfast / brunch. Not cheep either, food was good, we had a rather scary waitress that all of a sudden appeared 3inchs from behind us... Don't think I'll be back.
