Great place for a bite to eat and a few pints on a cold winter evening. Enjoyed the atmosphere and location on Elgin near the canal. Great fish and chips!

Crazy busy place but, crazy busy because it's so good! The breaky is top notch, the fruit juices are awesome and limitless coffee is great. Love the outdoor seating and the cute, private alcoves in the place - a hidden gem!
