YUM! I had the bircher muesli - absolutely delicious. Chunks of honey laden honeycomb, berries, and edible flowers on a delicious bed of yoghurt and muesli. The coffee was good too. Go!

Service was great. The dude taking names to get you a table has a very good system in place. We didn't have to wait long. They even found us space with a pram. Service was fast and friendly. Coffee and food was delicious.
