Bolognese was my favorite and the Southern (?) chicken comes to a close second. Long queue in the morning but we went back for late lunch and got good seats.

Stumbled across this place when searching rather than paying the rip off prices for breakfast in our hotel. The queue was an indication the food must be good and it didn't disappoint. Returned the following morning.

Good food but massive portions. Could do with a refit and some mugs without chips/cracks. Really good service. A little expensive for what it is.

Went in here for a quick dinner and wasn't disappointed. Service was quick and friendly. Food was comforting, fresh and hot. Great prices too for city centre!

This is a small little diner that serves a good breakfast. It's so small that the line to get in is outside but don't fret it short and moves quick. Good service good food. We will be back

There was always a queue outside this diner in the morning so I assumed it must be fairly good. The first couple of mornings we didn't wait as we were in a hurry. However we did go back a few days later at around 10.30am...More

Very busy diner, we had to wait to be seated. Very good breakfast options. Highly recommended. We went there with a baby and a stroller and although it was busy we were easily accommodated.

Poor food. Disgusting service and still forced to pay top gratuity as it's automatically added to the bill. If you have the option - choose McDonald's
