Freezing inside, no heating on in the middle of winter. Ordered a Calamari salad that contained limited calamari and an over abundance of olives and capers. Coffee was good. Menu limited.

Nice tasty Thai salad here today. Live, slightly strange music being played. Good lunch stop with some outside seating.

The thing that immediately caught my attention when I first entered this cafe were the Little Golden Books scattered across out table. At first I thought maybe my book group had changed the month's reading at the last minute, or else the restaurant was just being cute (they knew that the book club was meeting here) but as it turned...

I've been to 3rd world restaurants that have felt healthier than this place. Lovely people but they have no idea!? It's like eating in a frat house

we ate at picnic last month and while the food was great, and the staff were friendly, the service was disappointing. They seemed a bit unfocused. We ordered 2 standard coffees, while we looked at the menus and they had to come back and check again what one of them was. A different person took our meal order, and we... More

Loved the avocado/feta/eggs on toast for breakfast. The zucchini fritters which are often the special of the day are also amazing. Service is relatively quick and the waiters are friendly. I have been back many times!

We found this place by chance & weren't disappointed! The veggie options were great and when the food arrived it was fresh, delicious & good value for the price. There was a very cosmopolitan feeling about this place. Highly recommended!

Went purely by chance after dropping off car at Hertz nearby and we weren't disappointed. The Autumn Harvest breakfast was an interesting combination which worked well. The croissants also went down well. Staff very friendly and attentive.

Had breakfast here with the kids. I had a choc croissant, thought it might be warm. The kids muffin was a bit dry, even buttering the muffin would help. Avocado mash was excellent and a generous serve. The coffee was excellent. Overall not bad, not excellent. Staff lovely!

Thank Rounsie
