Great front of house staff, lovely decor, coffee service excellent. They get you with that! An awful long time to wait for breakfast, just as well my early morning meeting was cancelled. I waited half an hour for some pancakes.

The staff are so friendly! So refreshing especially given that it's a busy time of year! Good smoothies, BLT and Vietnamese chicken pancake. They also sell a few local wines by the glass. Would definitely come back.
