“Great place to relax”
Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

We popped in here for a breakfast, and this was our first visit, it was very busy, and when ordering the food was told it could be up to an hour to wait, however we only had to wait about 25 minutes, and it was well worth the wait, everything on the plate had great flavours, and was presented well. The staff are friendly, and attentive, we sat people watching, and the clientele are a mixture of students, and academics, the atmosphere is very relaxed, and un rushed, thoroughly recommend this little gem for a breakfast.

“Great atmosphere pity about the food”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

We used to be regulars in here, but.....
The atmosphere is always excellent and great for a coffee but thats about it.
The food really lets this place down, it could be so much more.

“Nice place for informal meal”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

I frequently pop into the Lounge for their breakfast, perfect when you want a fry-up that doesn't feel too unhealthy!

The service can be a bit hit and miss, one waitress in particular who is incredibly rude but generally the staff are pleasant. It is not uncommon for an order to be missed, and frequently parts of orders are brought out at different times - sometimes 15 minutes apart.

The place itself is very nice, the big windows are good for watching the world go by and there are always papers and magazines to read.

Value is good, as is the menu.
