Got the smashed avocado w/feta on sourdough. Was amazing, it was quiet busy and we got our food pretty quick. Only criticism is when we ordered, we all just got our stuff at different times but we wanted to eat together. However highly recommend.

After renovations this cafe has lost nine of its quirky charm - just a more interesting menu. A go to spot for coffee lovers with eclectic seating inside and a leafy courtyard.

Great for high quality coffee in this modern grunge cafe. An eclectic mix of vintage furniture and clientele. Great for quick meal or snack though the main attraction is the awesome coffee.
