“A City Oasis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

This little cafe is a hidden gem. One is never disappointed when dinning here. The food is exactly what the menu states, soulful! The dishes are each packed with delicious flavour and their in-house relish is DEVINE!! What a great place to eat out on the weekend, surrounded by boutique shops, there is always something to see. The menu offers scrumptious dishes such as oats and Whiskey, Fillet steak open sandwich, and a chicken salad that is all wonderfully prepared and oh so yummy! If you pop in during winter then the Hot Chocolate is a must! Pure chocolate served with hot milk, and you mix your own cup of liquid heaven. Kitchen closes at 14:00 on Sundays.

“Comfy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

There is a friendly comfy atmosphere, a fire place in winter, and tables under the trees for summer. The menu is simple but good healthy food.

“Best place for Sunday Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

Exceptionally tasty food in chilled setting just perfect for a Sunday breakfast. Sweet Caribbean French Toast or New York Cheesecakes are absolute must-haves!
