“Healthy Eating”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

Eco-conscious food, all female staff dressed in black, diatribes against processed food on each table. May be healthy, but not a particularly happy or fun place to enjoy a meal. Good if you have gluten issues, I suppose.

“Delicious food and cool retro facade”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

We ordered corn fritters and gourmet mushrooms on bread, both were excellent. The cafe's commitment to good ingredients really shines through.
My only complaint would be that having ordered 'gourmet mushrooms with bread, brie and pesto', I didn't expect the mushrooms to come in a very rich creamy sauce as it wasn't mentioned on the menu, and I found it a bit heavy for lunch (even though it was very nice). I'd recommend that the menu is changed to specify that.

“delicious”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

Food was amazing. Great selection of Gluten Free, vegan and vegetarian options. No MSG used (awesome!). The decor is cute and charming. They also sell gourmet sauces etc as well. carrot cake was to DIE FOR. Plenty of fresh produce used and made with care. The staff are really friendly and helpful.

Dining indoors or out, umbrellas for outdoors when sunny. Complimentary water for everyone.

Kitchen closes at 3pm and they don't serve dinner.
