We had to queue outside to get a table so rug up if you go in winter. The staff were lovely and we got a lovely table inside quite quickly. Coffee was fantastic and breakfast was yummy. It was worth the wait.

We had around a 20 minute wait for a table for 6 on a busy Sunday morning. Nice and warm inside, although a little noisy. Accomodating for children (not quite pram-friendly) and delicious meals!
