Chop Shop is a must for a business, couples or group brunch or similar. It can be quite noisy though if you are doing business yet the coffee is good, the food great and the service prompt.

Came here for Turkish eggs as recommended and haven’t regretted it! Highly recommended to all. Can be busy but there is a nice place to wait and well worth it. Anything from the menu looks amazing, there is something for everyone!
