Came here last Sunday for breakfast. The vegan option is lovely - and they only charged me £5 for it too as I think there's slightly less on it compared to the veggie. In hindsight, I should've maybe asked if I could have extra hashbrowns...More

Skipped our hotel breakfast and came here on a sunny morning. Lucky to get a table outside. Great menu and a super brunch came quickly after ordering. Terrific eggs royale for me and waffles + bacon for the other. Delish

Stopped here for coffee and breakfast one morning. Lovely independent café serving great coffee and a good selection of breakfast options. I had the eggs benedict which was very good. Nice outdoor seating area.

Stopped here for lunch on a wonderful hot day so sat outside listening to live music. Ordered two sandwiches - deliciously done on granary bread with a side salad - one ham and another chicken. Really good value for £5:95. Friendly staff and good service.

Lovely cafe next to the Clifton Arcade. Unusual choice of sandwiches however, they were lovely, served with a side salad - pulled smoked chicken sandwich is to die for! Gluten free bread is also available for sandwiches. Coffee was also very nice however, perhaps they...More
