Really enjoy the coffee at Joseph Street Kitchen which is in a unique place. Staff are very lovely. I sometimes get the toast and spreads when I’m there. The toast is really nice and is made on the premises.

Good food, good staff, good atmosphere. Not your run of the mill cafe, worth a look for both their decorations and food. Lots of things to look at, very helpful with different requests. I have put "not good for dinner" as it closes at 3-30....More
