I like the variety of gluten free options. But the poached egg on toast looked super amazing! Smoothies worth recommending! This place becomes so busy over the weekend that need to come to extra portions of patience while waiting for food..

I don't come here enough. The staff are always friendly, and the food it always on point. Can get really busy, but that can only be seen as a good thing. If you haven't been... then GO

A wonderfully quirky place, a real buzz. Great coffee/food. All freshly prepared. Potato hash was delicious. Took my two teenagers who really enjoyed it. I thought it was a bit pricey but probably worth it!
