We only popped in for a coffee but couldn't resist the look of the vegan banana bread. It tasted even better than it looked. The coffee was delicious and the cafe had a great atmosphere. It was close to closing time, but we didn't feel...More

Nice ambiance but the staff seemed a little inexperienced (not their fault) and there didn't seem to be anyone senior in charge. Had the pork sandwhich which was lacking sufficient filling so was a little underwhelming considering the price ($10). Coffee and food was OK...More

We ordered toasted sandwiches here and they were made up of one tiny thin piece of lunch meat, some dry rocket : no cheese or condiments. Think dry toast. Took 25 minutes and was beyond a poor effort for such an easy dish.More

Hi Hannah P, We understand that the sandwich was not prepared correctly. If you have rocket, then you ordered the Pork Porchetta Toastie. Far from lunch meat it is made by a local providore Butcher; it is served with a house made Apple Sauce, which...More
