This cafe has wonderful staff and a warm space. The menu is simple with good fresh produce, attractively plated. Table service was efficient and they were happy to split the bill. For my taste I would prefer more spice, but enjoyed my meal.

Also dog friendly if you come up the back stairs. Their bacon and home made bake beans should definitely be included for breakfast. Very accommodating staff, and breakfast will get you through the whole day

Food is acceptable, sourdough is way to hard to be used as a base for eggs; fix it. Java changes every visit, you need to be consistent. This is important.
