New menu, new experience and newly pleased. This quaint cafe delivers with craft beers to boot. Also easy to pop in anytime for a quick bite. Coffees are great as well.

When majority of nice cafes are very centralised in the centre of the city it's very nice to have a local cafe which is vibey, serves delicious food, has a friendly and relaxed staff and gives more character to the area. Veggie wrap is amazing!...More

We had the make-your-own-salad: superb, and the chicken wrap - very filling. Carrot cake was good too, service good and venue great. Would definitely go there again - prices reasonable as well.

Cosy little corner cafe vibe that serves the best french toast and coffee. The breakfasts were also hearty and beautifully presented.

Popped in for a quick lunch. Service staff friendly. Food was ok. Would go again if in the area but not make a special effort.

Stopped for coffee and croissant. The coffee was really awesome but the croissant was like cardboard. I asked for the croissant to be warmed and this was done with the cheese still on - it ended up like a burger!! I did not eat it.
