I have eaten here a few times and cannot understand what the hype is about. Food is very average and on a few occasions pretty poor. It's expensive and service is not that great.

Food was not bad at all and juice was superb. What was a pity was the attitude of the staff. Not recommended if you are sensitive to standoffish staff.

This is a small coffee bar restaurant which serves coffee etc and light lunches/pastries until early afternoon. Easy paring and nice coffee and light lunches.

I have a breakfast here regularly and really enjoy the scramble and poached eggs. The mince on toast is a winner too! The coffee is always excellent! For lunch the home made pies and burgers are delicious! what a wonderful atmosphere!
