A friend and I had an amazing breakfast at old john's this morning. The bacon and egg roll was surprinsingly big and really delicious. And the hot chocolate and coffee were looking too good to be drunk and were maevelous to drink too !! I completely recommend this place, and the atmosphere is just charming :)

Had breakfast there for our last day of holidays in September and the breakfast was really delicious and had plenty of flavour. Was a good breaky where you can enjoy your food without feeling sick. Recommend going there and the service was really good as well. Loved the chaii latte

If you are a hipster or a wanna be hipster this is the place to be. It is funky, retro and totally cool. Nice music playing and old-fashioned uncomfortable furniture. Drinks are good and the staff are to notch.

Great to stop off for a coffee but breakfast menu was very lame. Very healthy eating choices. If you want eggs benny this isn't the place to go.

Had a great brekkie and an even better coffee. Menu had plenty of options and the portions were large. A bit expensive but the best in town probably. Had the scrambled eggs with panchetta.

It's ok very hipster. It's nice on a good day. The coffee is ok, nothing the right home about. It's much more a coffee shop then a food place and the food it just to ad on (the kitchen is very small).

This is a cute coffee shop come cafe. They have this awesome coffee called Five Senses. The place is very popular BUT I was disgusted to see some very poor staff hygiene practices. One fellow was placing what looked like Fetta Cheese onto a meal with his fingers without having gloves on. He then wiped his fingers on a chux... More
