Visited here with a friend for breakfast. I thought the breakfast menu was interesting and reasonably priced. You have to order at the bar, and they don't take a name or table number. I worry that at peak times they might struggle to find you...More

Used to eat here regularly getting a vegetarian breakfast and always enjoyed it. However I began to notice quality slipping, breakfast taking a long time to come, food cold, smaller portions. I stopped going for around a year and decided this weekend to give it...More
