Want the best eggs and coffee in town? This is definitely the place to visit. A very busy cafe on a Friday morning, many of the customers seemed to be locals - always a good sign. Although the waitress appeared to have a great deal to do, he still found time for a friendly chat and recommended some local places to visit.

Grabbed a coffee in the morning then went back at lunch as it was actually really good.

Also had a wrap for lunch. Tasty, fresh and not dry or covered in sugary sauce.

Excellent fast service - even when there was hardly a free table at lunchtime there was only a couple minutes wait.

My only criticism is that the coffee was a little hotter than I like but it cooled down and wasn't burnt like so many are these days.

I had been here a while back. The food is not very pleasing. Coffee, great. The wrap I had was rubbery, possibly just because of the type of bread it was. Flavours were not enjoyable. It was edible, but not recommended for a visit/get together.
Staff was friendly, just the food was not too good.

Hi, we are sorry your lunch was not enjoyable, we suspect it may have been a gluten free wrap which are dryer than others but we will discuss this with the kitchen and make improvements. If you are having lunch here again and there is a problem please let the staff know so that it can be put right for you.
Thanks
Sue

Well, it's been in business since I arrived here in 2004- so they must be doing something right! Quality and consistency, good coffee, and a funky wine bar too.
