This little place on K Road oozes personality. The decor inside has been thought out in great detail, from the chalkboard waiting list on a door to the handwritten menu. The place is dimly lit with a cheerful playlist, adding to the "funky" vibe. Not...More

Noisy, buzzy, great cafe atmosphere. Bruschetta with broad beans and mozzarella was superb. Steak and chips excellent. Wine list could do with a bit more interest but well priced.
