Excellent service, very clean and inviting. Delicious food that caters for the majority of diets. Not cheap but you get good sized meals.

Great find! Really exciting menu it took us ages to choose. I had the sweet corn/courgette fritters & poached egg which was perfect. I would have it again!! My partner had a lentil dish with poached eggs that was also delicious. Extensive drinks menu, I went for kombucha which was probably the wrong choice as it was bottled and have... More

I went for breakfast with my partner and daughter, I ordered the big breakfast, my partner ordered pan fried taties and my daughter scrambled eggs and bacon on toast. I left disappointed as the quality of the food didn't match the price tag. It all tasted bland and uninspired and the techniques applied to the cooking were that of an... More

As a traveller through this area, I had researched food outlets and went out of my way to find this cafe and so pleased I did. It is in a lovely old building with high ceilings, brick walls and an open light filled rear area with lots of windows and a fire in winter. Food is displayed in a cabinet... More

To be honest I was very tempted to go somewhere else. Straight of the bat, the staff lacked an inviting atmosphere, perhaps because my partner and I are young, appearing both rude and uninviting. I felt like it created a negative atmosphere, however, this can easily be improved if they are willing to put the effort in. The food was... More

Sat inside by the open window was nice to not have smoke from outdoor tables wafting into the cafe. Lovely friendly staff and great coffee.

Received at $20 voucher and decided to have a weekend lunch. I have seen salads here during the week but none today. Lots of breakfast choices and only a few savoury, lots of different sweets. Our quiche was nice and we loved the cronut. Would go back again.

Enjoyed a delicious quinoa porridge with coconut yoghurt & fruit, and a long black. Porridge was delicious, not too heavy, and kept me full and energised for the majority of the day. My long black was perfect as well, served as an espresso with hot water on the side so I could fill to my liking. Definitely recommend :)
