Tide has great coffee and quality food. Not for the budget conscious, but value for money given the quality. Can be a little busy and noisy at peak times due to its location.

Keep coming back here as it doesn't disappoint! Big breakfast and smoked salmon benedict, top notch. The only thing as I have said before is that the rosti is awful!! Wasn't cooked through, previous times just tasted strange. But everything else was perfect.
