We popped in for breakfast on a Monday morning - the place was very busy but we didn't have trouble getting a table. Staff were polite and professional.

Food was not bad at all and juice was superb. What was a pity was the attitude of the staff. Not recommended if you are sensitive to standoffish staff.
