Good food, excellent service! Large menu, something for everyone. Centrally located in Bloomsbury Street. Looks like a favourite also among locals.

What a lovely little find! The brunch we had was divine, the service decent and very well priced. Definitely going to be my new favourite spot near Tottenham Court Road Tube Station.

10 of us turned up for a lunch. Everyone chose something different but the cafe was unfazed. Good food, good service reasonably priced. Well worth a visit if you’re in the Bloomsbury area.
