The was recommended for breakfast. Went there, table dirty and menu was on grease encrusted paper. Ordered the eggs benedict and a vegan breakfast. Also two coffees. The coffees arrived 15 minutes later and the food one and half hours later. Even then had to ask the staff several times for the food. The eggs benedict was runny, the mushrooms underneath so salty they were inedible and the bread was not even toasted. The place was not busy but seemed to be in disarray The coffee was watery and lacked flavour. Food was very poor quality.

Went for breakfast - took 25 mins for coffees to arrive. Breakfast took 50mims - large serving but poached eggs were hard and cold. Both our breakfasts seemed to have spent about 10 mins before getting to our tabl.
Also the tables weren’t cleared from previous guests.
Not sure if it was a bad day but only 10 other people in the cafe.
The cake I took home was delicious- that’s why it got 2 stars.

All of the food is made fresh onsite. Fresh sourdough can be purchased - we pre-order ours and pickup. Part baked loaves can also be purchased and finished off in the oven at home. It’s all delicious and healthy food.

Food here is healthy and very tasty. Service can be slow so plan to settle in with the paper provided. Nice selection of fresh leave teas. French Earl Grey very nice and delightful. Service is always with a smile and apologies for taking so slow. Fresh bread baked here is amazing a little bit more than you would normally pay but each to there own on what you pay. Cakes and other goodies available for takeaway. Also cooking classes see there menu and web.
