Stayed there for business meeting at a hotel near by and this was perfect handy to it for a 7am breakfast. The drinks are lovely and the smoothies tasty (and filling). Colleagues had some granola type thing and it looked very nice!

I have visited this cafe twice in three days and had Moroccan eggs. They are spicy and most delicious. Their coffee is strong and wonderful.

Certainly service with a smile and prompt delivery of menus and water. We had breakfast here on a Sunday morning and sat outside although there was room inside also. You do have to share with the dog owner brigade but fine by us. Very nice hotcakes with plenty of syrup. Pretty flower petals on the plate and flowers on tables... More

Asked what sauces came in the burger advised a mango chutney asked for something different but also when it came out it had garlic aioli - I wish I had been advised this when asked what sauces were in the burger....

Went for the breakfast in the basis of the TripAdvisor rating but was very disappointed. The muesli was stale and the coffee was tasteless. To top it off the waitress seemed to resent us being there

Food is delicious. Coffee is good. Friendly staff. Cozy interior. But unfortunately no wifi pass was offered. Will try to come again for a lunch or a snack.
