Lovely menu and great outdoor dining if warm enough. Good wine list with fast food service and a changing menu. Easy and not too expensive for a midweek treat.

Great place to visit if you are in britomart. They change their menu sometimes which is so cool as it makes for variety. The food I've had has always been fresh and tasty, and the staff are attentive. Rich iced chocolate, and great juices
