They have a collection of curry sandwiches and they are amazing. I also like their pineapple, apple and gotukola juice which is an unusual combo, but works like magic. They also have cakes and good desserts.

We tried various main courses, some were good, some certainly disappointing. Appearance of Ants on the plate made us nervous.

Went there to check some emails and grab a quick bite around 11 am in the morning. It was quiet, service was quick and helpful. Food was average. Not outstanding, it was warmed in a microwave oven, so quick and easy. Juice was fresh.More
