This place makes a great treat at the end of a marina walk or an interlude in checking out the Sunday market All seating is outside allowing one to soak up the atmosphere of the Sunday market which often features a spot of music.

Dependable and consistent place for a vegetarian lunch or afternoon cake and coffee. Great dining area albeit a bit on the bohemian side. Fair prices especially considering the quality ingredients.

Made my own sandwich on the spelt bread and had the Chana masala soup. Staff was funny and really accommodating. Place is absolutely gorgeous and food is very fresh!

Food is very delicious, healthy. Staff is very nice. I was in Paul St, in Centre. This place is not clean, tables are dirty. Coffee is not tasty, so weak... But food is worthy to visit this restaurant again...

We visited the Paul St shop for a late breakfast. The bread was absolutely fantastic- all fresh, all organic. coffee & pastries lovely too. Don't know why there aren't queues out the door for the bread, though!
