Excellent fresh breakfast in an unusual and character location. Be prepared to queue as this is a popular place with the locals and well as visitors.

No place like it for breakfast. From the fresh choice to the way they call your name when your foods ready! Had a lovely smoothie and pastry for breakfast and my wife had French toast. It's always busy unless you get there super early.

Family visit for a late breakfast. It's an interesting and quirky place with lots of character, but also looks like it could do with a good scrub. It was very busy, most tables were occupied. Quite a few dogs which I found annoying. One was...More

A busy place. But worth the wait it's freshly cooked to order. Friendly staff and superb coffee. Don't go if in a hurry. But if you're not. Enjoy the vibe of a friendly place with a good choice of food n drinks.
