In fact I think the staff know me by name now, so frequently do I have coffee here. Staff are always lovely and polite. Excellent cabinet food and brunches. I'm partial to the date and chocolate slice with yoghurt.. so please leave some for me!

Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. At this stage we don't have a large or consistent selection of vegan food. Something we're looking at though! Cheers.
