Nice surroundings upstairs on Willis Street, excellent service and gorgeous food. Very busy place so get there early for lunch or business meetings in between peak times even. Highly recommend.

Lovely modern cafe. However it is a bit cramped and uncomfortable especially when busy. Parmesan fries were nice and crispy. Coffee was ok, tasted a bit burnt.

I visit mostly for coffee but the coffee is great, staff helpful and friendly. The few food items I have had are delicious - especially those halloumi stuffed croissants. Healthy salads.
