Great vegetarian buffet, always freshly prepared. Seating always available, service is prompt. Good place to also just have a quiet lunch.

I like the setting of the restaurant, in an open building along with a boutique, bookshop and an A-Grade grocery section. However, I dislike the micro portions which they serve, but then again I have a terribly large stomach for a guy my size

Decent place to go for brunch, but I really think it gets more hype than it deserves. Food and service are nothing exceptional, so I get the impression that people are paying for the ambiance (which is lovely) and the high possibility of running into their hipster friends.

Nice casual place, best flapjacks ever. Good breakfast table - yoghurt muesli fruit etc.
and very good coffee!
Service slightly unpredictable, have had some experiences of being deserted … but generally the staff are very helpful, & it's a great atmosphere.
