Good food and coffee but we felt pretty jammed in, the tables were so close to each other and although the staff were friendly it felt like we were being a bit rushed through. Would recommend the green smoothie!

Went here for brunch for the first time, had to go back today, the big breakfast was a hit, the home made hash browns with perfectly cooked eggs, along with a very tasty generous sausage. The coffee and Montreal salmon today was outstanding.
