The coffee is pretty much always great, as is the food. Occasionally the standard does slip but generally it's a good bet.

Food was good. Coffee too. Service was friendly. One waits for good food, so it pays to be patient. It is not a fast food restaurant, it is a place where people meet and spend time together, even if going to work on the way. Make sure tou are not pressed for time somthat you can enjoy this amazing place.... More

We had burgers and home-made lemonade, as well as their chocolate cake - delicious! Love the look of the place as well.

We met up with my hubby for a quick bite to eat for his lunch break at work. Drinks were cold (cappuccinos) and we waited for 50min after placing our meal order for it to eventually arrive.

Very slow service. 3 Different waiters which resulted in orders being wrong. Requested food not even complete according to menu! Very small portions for the ridiculous prices. Definitely a no go.

Used to be okay but no more. On sitting down (at a sticky table), one is told that 60% of the menu is not available - no fish or seafood, no pies, no chicken, etc etc. Essentially only burgers or pizza The burgers were okay but the chips tasted like they had been deep fried quite a few times.
