Dropped in for lunch and ended up requesting a mix of options that wasn't a set item on the menu. So impressed this was zero hassle for the staff member who took my order and on top of that the meal arrived super-quick. Delicious too!

I drink a Dirty Chai and this was the nicest I've had in a long while. The barrister really knew her stuff. My husband and I each had the vege breakfast (though we are not vegetrian) and it was delicious.

Highly disappointing. Dropped in for coffee. Messy inside, smelled of lunch. Coffee not anything special. Both customer service and coffee need to improve.

Nice place for brunch. A good selection of very tasty food with a number of vegetarian options. Good coffee and hot chocolates. Can be a bit noisy but otherwise very enjoyable. Will be back.

Thanks for asking but the owners have no input into your reviews. I believe you can edit or delete and replace so that might be the only option. Kind regards Gail
