Small but great food. We gave up our table for a party of 5 as we only had our 2nd coffee round to finish our meal. The staff and group were very appreciative.

The coffee is strong but not bitter - just how we like it and the meal was the perfect size with simple but great flavours. Brunch was a great time to sit outside and watch the world go buy.

It's a busy place but I don't think it is a secret anymore. They were busy as... definitely worth a meal. (We've tried them for dessert at night before too and were not disappointed).

Brunch was very good. Slick service and capable, switched on staff with a sense of humour. Food was some of the best I've had. I'll be coming back and recommending to others.

Fantastic restaurant for dinner and it looked like breakfast/lunch would be great too. We were one coeliac and one vegetarian and they looked after us superbly. Wine selection is small but very good. Lovely people, nice environment. All good.

4 of us went for brunch, 1 gluten free. We all found great things to eat as well as plenty of choice. We all would go again. Both the food and the setting was excellent.

Very good cafe food. Nice coffee. We had breakfast there for two mornings and really enjoyed the food. Lots of gluten free options. Would go back there any day.
