A favourite meeting place for breakfast or just to hang out with friends for coffee. The food is really great and wholesome.

We stopped here for an early breakfast on Sunday, I had read very good reviews so thought we’d give it a try. Delicious breakfast food, we had the brioche, bagel with salmon and eggs on toast. Great coffee too! Cabinet food also looked devine.
