I am not a fan of coffee but I had theirs and it was nice. Maybe coz I was so full the caffeine didn't affect me like it normally would. Platter was generous but I didn't like the sourness of a lot of the food....More

Loved the selection of vegan food but the inari was a little salty, which made it difficult to have a lot of. Lovely people and so helpful.
