“love this place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013

I love beat street for what it is, non pretentious and honest, it has a lovely atmosphere and the staff are great, the clientele are from all walks of life, including myself, i could choose to go to a sterile mass produced coffee/food place and be bored, but i choose to go to beat street.

“Breakfast Mmmmm and healthy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

We had breakfast here after staying in a hostel just down the road.

Scrambled egg on organic toast was lovely (more toast next time please!) and the jam on bagels was nice (although they had run out of bagels and offered it with ciabatta bread instead).

Big pot of English tea topped it off perfectly

It was a bit dark but you could sit outside. Love the retro feel.

Only improvement would have been some wi-fi to check the morning news.

“Casual, friendly, good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

Came here a couple of times, good food and lovely (alternative) atmosphere! The breakfast isn't that amazing but they have some nice cakes (recommending the beetroot-chocolate one!) and vegan options.
