Nothing negativity to say about this place, and the coffee rewards card is a nice bonus. Staff are fast and friendly, and the pay it forward option for the needy is very welcome.

What a wonderful cafe. Felt welcome the moment we stepped in. Amazing service, efficient without feeling rushed. Personable and friendly. Took the time to listen to dietary requirements and served us the most wonderful breakfast.

Sunday morning breakfast was quite mediocre. Menu quite limited. We (3) had a bacon and roll. Quite dry. Sauce was not offered. Banana bread (1) was quite dry and served cold. Quite disappointed. Coffee was reasonable.

Went for brunch, and were told poached eggs were microwaved, so of course yolks were hard!, We found it to be very pricey for a breakfast menu. Staff were friendly and pleasant.

Hot chocolate was luke warm, they forgot the sides of bacon and banana bread. Toast was not properly toasted so they got the basics wrong :-(
