Great food and coffee.Atmosphere good, but something needs to be done about the accoustics. Can be hard to hear people when it's busy.

I'm not a huge breakfast eater, so loved that there was cabinet food to choose from! Also one of the few places where you can change items on the big breakfast and not get charged an arm and a leg for it! Would recommend.
