I love little quiet cafes like this. The chairs and tables are all mismatched and interesting, a wide variety of couches you could choose to sit at and a fire place in the middle. Different artworks are spread all over, and a tiny bookshop at...More

Loved it - the food was exceptional! We had the Cajun chicken burger and pumpkin and feta quiche - my teenage boys gave it the thumbs up! Can certainly recommend it.

You simply can't wait for an hour for a soup and an omelette, and after asking info twice to the staff, have no reply at all. So I have asked my money back. A place like this doesn't deserve to exist.

Slow service and pretty rude about it. I've tried a few times now and staff make it clear they'd much rather be chatting to each other than serving customers. Food at each try was below average.
