A weekend must for delicious coffee and amazing breakfasts. if you order breakfast here it will be sometime before you are hungry. Eggs done everywhich way, coupled with smoked salmon, and all sorts of ingredients or traditional full fry the choice is too long to mention here. Oh and great coffee

Best ever French onion soup, friendly service, great background music. Lovely situation in Plymouth Barbican with views of the waterfront. A friend recommends it for smoked salmon & scrambled egg breakfasts. Interesting lunch menu.
