I was greeted enthusiastically, asked if I'd like my item heated, and was engaged in a conversation which was great as they were pretty busy.

OMG this place was a nightmare experience. So noisey. Every sound reverberated off every surface. The continual hammering down of the coffee filter holder, people's voices, staff crashing and clanging the crockery, seriously this was the worst EVER experience.

I had 'Hen house, piggly wiggly and the garden' with the eggs scrambled and it was absolutely delicious! Hands down best scrambled eggs I've ever had and apparently very popular which is not surprising. Loved the whole dish. And well priced which is a bonus.

Offering a bit of a different range of cabinet food but some items seem a little expensive for what they are. Having said that though, the food is delicious and the staff very friendly and chatty. Overall, nice place and will return.
