    It was my daughters birthday and I’d booked for a pre theatre brunch on Sunday. We received a warm welcome and she was wished a happy birthday and presented with a birthday chocolate brownie which made her day! Breakfast was delicious and the girls cocktails went down a treat too!! It’s perhaps a little expensive but well worth a visit - we will definitely return and recommend it!

    An absolutely horrendous visit here. Didn’t get served, or given menus until 30 minutes after we arrived. The coffee was lukewarm. The food then came out 50 minutes later after asking twice where it was. The avocado toast my friend got was stone cold, after bringing this up to a waiter he was incredibly rude and stormed away. The portion size of my food was ridiculously small for the cost of it, my halloumi was cold and the avocado again was freezing cold, most likely frozen? We were then asked how our food was by our waitress to which we were truthful and said not great.. she then still charged us a service charge which we didn’t agree to pay. We ended up asking for a refund of this back. Never again will we back here. Awful service, rude staff and the food was mediocre.

    Absolute joy. Had already sampled their delicious brunches so thought we would give dinner a try. What a treat! I had the delicious miso salad, full of lovely fresh flavours, the thinly sliced pear balanced the dish beautifully. The selection of dips and bread were great and the house white an excellent Pinot Grigio. The staff were helpful and charming and we were lucky enough to be able to chat with Chef Robert about his exciting new menu. Would definitely recommend for a chilled evening meal.

    Love this cafe. Central location and the food, service and surroundings are fantastic. They're flexible with food allergies and intolerances as well.
