Went on a Sunday afternoon got served straight way with a resonable wait for the Meatball Panini and scrambled egg on wholemeal with mushrooms, tomatoes and bacon. Food was good fresh and tasty-no complaints. Lovely staff. Clean premises.Reasonable price for the food. The coffees were nice and the Chai Tea was delicious. They even charge your phone.

Amazing that there are so many excellent reviews pouring on to this site. Suprising how many reviewers love it so much they have done multiple excellent reviews for here and nowhere else in some cases 10 or more. So I went to find out what was so brilliant here. Located opposite a tram stop the café is a single shop front property. I would say the set up is a step up on your average café. I visited after what would have been the morning rush and some tables had not been cleared and cleaned. So, what about the food. Well a larger percentage of the positive reviews mention the all-day English Breakfast which is what I ordered. What arrived was a full and plentiful plate. However the breakfast did not appear to be cooked to order most of it was already cooked and kept warm.. The beans were the overwhelming ingredient and they were seriously overcooked. The beans themselves disintegrating in the sauce. The toast was not hot . The sausage was nothing special quite bland in fact.. The bacon and tomato OK. The egg was a cop out as fried eggs take some skill to get right and also their cooking needs good extraction. The egg here is just microwaved as that’s easy. So what can you say other than its just a very average café at best. Price is about right for what I got.

The service was good even though it was busy when we went the waitress was super friendly and funny! The food was amazing; my partner got the English breakfast which was gone in seconds and I got cheese on toast which was to die for!! Would highly recommend going... the prices are good too!
