As good a place as you'll find in Croydon. Great atmosphere; locally owned and run; great coffee; great food and if you go to the Hoodoo's venue out the back you're sure to find some great live music in the evenings.

There is a female who works at the burger bar and she is fantastic! Whenever we travel into Croydon we make sure we go because her service is incredible! And so are the burgers!
