Our daughter recently moved into the Southville neighborhood just a couple blocks away from this converted tobacco manufacturing plant. We have been in several times over the past couple of weeks and I love this place. Good food, including breakfast, and a very nice selection...More

Outstanding performance for all the family. Took my 5 year old Twins who loved it. Mesmerising performance by the 4 actors with fantastic music colours and atmosphere throughout. Funny, charming and being only 50 minutes it was just the right time. Great cafe just next...More

They bulk up the large bowl full of veg and there's hardly any of the good stuff! beware of this restaurant. PLUS, if you wish to book a table there, you need to call 100 times before getting a response, I once left 3 voicemails...More

Came here for lunch on a Saturday. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff but the food was rubbish. Two of us had burgers, they were overcooked, dry, not fresh buns and lacking in flavour (although tasty chips). Our group also had an egg dish and sausages,...More
