Friendly staff, Enjoyed the banting bowl... Nice to see that more eating places are accommodating banting menus. Enjoyed the filter coffee. Nice atmosphere to meet friends & family just to catch up.

They serve a great cuppachino Service at times slowish! They tend to forget a request for a glass of water. A very dangerous step into the Cafe which is well indicated but never the less unexpected.

Hi Johanna Thanks for the review and apologies for the delayed response. I will certainly look into the issue of the water and unfortunately that step is an issue that we do our best to highlight and warm people about!
