Cool vibe here. Plus probably just about the best Eggs Beni EVER! So good! Great friendly staff. Cool selection of food and variety. Loved the homemade holly sauce! Next time I'm gonna go for a salad. They looked awesome

We had breakfast here this morning and would definitely recommend this place. Staff were polite and friendly, and food arrived promptly even though they were reasonably busy. Delicious waffles and really great chai latte. Yum!

Called in for a late lunch when we hit town. Good coffee and food fresh from the kitchen. Advised kitchen closed at 3pm until later when they reopened for dinner. Service was great also.

We each had a drink and a meal. I had the fried rice with kimchi, it was really nice, quite spicy, which I like. I had a berry smoothie as well, which was good. Could have been a bit larger though. The others had coffees,...More
