Round the corner from our flat is Embo. Selling good coffee, tasty breakfast and lunches it's one of my favourites for meeting friends or an informal meeting with a colleague. If you're very lucky and it's a sunny morning, head to Embo where they have two small tables outside the cafe where you can chat, drink coffees, grab some eggs... More

Small and cozy place, good music at the right volume. We had breakfast here, the food was very good (both salty and sweet), and coffee was great. The best part is the staff, they're really kind and seem to love their job.

A great little Gem! Great selection of foods and drinks. Very well presented and also great that they cater to gluten free and veggie customers with a wide selection. Soup and wrap 👍🏽

They usually have a good vegan soup on the menu for lunch. There are also several decent vegan options for wraps. The staff are warm and pleasant. Makes a big difference. I'd recommend it!

After a brief discussion with the owner Mark. He suggested a fantastic menu for a works party. We had a chicken & chorizo main dish. With a finger buffet. Including delicious mini sausages. If you need outside catering. Then look no further.

Thank Graeme S
