It’s an easy walk from the Empress Hotel. Extensive menu. We were there for breakfast. I had the wrap (quite good and large) and wife had ham and cheese croissant. Also good. I would return.

Situated near Russell's used books, it was a great little restaurant to begin a day of book browsing. Eggs cooked to perfection both times. Service was friendly and attentive without being pushy. Good coffee.
