“Nice but always busy”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

This is a great option when you are looking for a quick and easy breakfast or coffee. Alwasy very busy so a table is not readily available. Coffee is good as are the breakfasts. Better value than a hotel breakfast and healthier too.

“Terrible”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

I buy their cold meat in the morning when I'm desperate & early in the
morning, Fournos Benmore is on the way, so its easy to pass by after
dropping off my son, but I rarely make a pass, only when I need the cold
meat.
The staff is terrible especially the grumpy greek woman who prepares the buns with filling, they also sweep the floor with the dust splashing
all over baked crossaints.

“Best Sarmies”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Always fresh breads, and delicious food on display.
Staff can sometimes be a little unfriendly, sometimes taking a while to come to assist you, even when it is not busy.

“Always a pleasant quick lunch spot”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

....Except you are bound to leave with something for later from the bakery! Try the potato cake and hummus salad, really different and tasty. A new firm favourite.

“Great portuguese rolls, wholesome breads”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Enjoyed the freshly baked, crispy portuguese rolls. The range of breads are always of a high quality, I can proudly serve the breads at dinner parties and family functions.
