Popped in for a coffee and breakfast. The foods good, price is reasonable and the service is good. We ordered the full English and a vegetarian breakfast (avocado and sour bread) Nice way to start a busy day.

A popular place in the neighborhood. Nice sandwiches and other items on the menu. You can chill out or work on your laptop. Young crowd. Quiet busy.
