It's the people who make the place, and the people who once made this place great have left. Threadbare cabinets, tough steak sandwich, assemble it yourself toast

It's an enjoyable space & the food is pretty good, but it's pretty pricey even for Newton..... Plenty of space to make it suitable for private discussions.....

Not too bad eggs benedict. Fast service. A bit dirty and rabbit hole-ish to find the toilet. But would certainly return based on portion size and price

Its been a while since i have been to this cafe but straight away you can see new management has taken over. The place has gone downhill. Key takings 1) first impression, dirty, open door with lots of leaves on the floor, chair stacked. Felt as if it hadn't opened but it had. 2) Person on the front desk new... More

I had previously visited this place back in 2006 and had loved the eggs Benedict so much that I had to return. They were still good, although I am unsure if they were quite the same as in 2006. They are of course their signature dish.

After two hours trying on and assessing wedding dresses, we all needed coffee and a bite to eat. We were lucky enough to find this little gem of a cafe not far from the bridal shop. It looked small when we entered but we soon found plenty of room upstairs where we sat outside and had the added bonus of... More

Just happened to be in the area. We were attracted by the cafe's welcoming store front. Cabinet food were nice and what we went for. The all day menu was pretty limiting though and nothing jump out that we felt compelled to try. Food and coffee were good. Upstairs setting area was very nice. It opened up to a nice... More

This cafe used to make wonderful scrambled eggs and excellent coffee. I hadn't been for some months and didn't recognize any of the usual staff so I can only presume it has changed hands. I ordered my usual scrambled eggs and a side of bacon with a large coffee. The eggs were revoltingly greasy - I'm sure they'd been cooked... More

We ordered at the counter, then took a seat in the upstairs café section. the place was not that busy, maybe about 20 people max. Our table was not cleared for 15 inutes, and when this... More
