I decided to stop here for breakfast on my way to the Impressionist Exhibition (going with the French theme). I really enjoyed the ambiance of this cafe - it took me back to Paris, which was lovely. The service was a little slow but ok. There were lots of great options on the menu so choosing was difficult. Initially I thought Id get a croissant but there were a lot of flies covering the pastries which was quite off putting. They should think about covering them with something. I chose a dish which included eggs, mushrooms, pancetta, potato rosti, cheese & bread. It sounded like I would be having a big breakfast but in reality it was tiny. Everything except the bread was contained in a little dish, slightly bigger than an ash tray. The mushrooms lacked flavour as they were sweaty instead of caramslised. Unfortunately, the potato rosti was under the eggs and on top of the minced mushrooms and so it was quite soggy. There was a generous amount of bread which was delicious and some French butter. The coffee was below average. The meal was ok but the non-bread component was very tiny for the price. It still provided me with a French fix and I’d give them another go, ordering something different nxt time.
