Everything looks so good for you - and made with love. Chickpea salad was really tasty - and they usually aren't! I went back two days in a row. Coffee was on point. Staff were very friendly and the feel of the place was lively...More

I got some Nachos which were tasty but the portion size was fairly small. My wife got a muffin, also quite tasty. We weren't that impressed by the options available.
