My family and I often have brunch here to celebrate birthdays etc. The food is delicious and varied, the staff are generally attentive, and the location is perfect. Set in the middle of a park with shade and a great outlook. I definitely recommend.

We had lunch here on a Saturday afternoon. The food was ok nothing fantastic expected a bit more for the price. The location is good if you have children with a park next door. My partner says they do a much better breakfast.

Had delicious meals here Would return Only issue was drinks were very slow needing a few reminders and when one dish was incorrect took a long time for the new one to come

Busy little cafe, cannot fault the food, we shared the mezze plate, fresh and delicious. Staff were friendly, a little slow but that’s to be expected given how busy they were. If you like middle eastern you will love this! Also enjoyed our coffees.
