Fantastic venue that is designed brilliantly. Food is fantastic and service from the staff is exceptional. If you're in Welly you know this is the place to go for breakfast and lunch in the same day.

This place has a great menu and a great space. It was very busy when I went in around 8:30. Its on a side street but still downtown.
