Be ready to queue for a table - really popular spot for breakfast/ brunch/ lunch. And you can see why; great service, tasty food at a reasonable price, good options for veggies and fab coffee. Well worth a visit!

destinations in the world. Housing everything from the
most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you
