Buns and pancakes were amazing!
The place is a bit hidden inside a court yard between a block of flats.

The restaurant and location were lovely as a whole. We were just quite confused as we walked in as we didn't know whether we were meant to order at the counter or be shown to the table. A few seconds later we were shown to our table and given 2 bar codes to scan for the trace and track - not knowing one was the menu and another was for the trace and track. It took quite a while for them to take our order. When it came, the kale on the full healthy was too salty to eat. It also took them quite a while to take our payment so we didn't know if we were meant to pay at the till. Just a very confusing cafe/resto experience as a whole.

Very friendly and helpful staff. However, food was not worth the price and the wait. Small portions, overpriced and nothing special in terms of taste. The place was busy and we had to wait at least 30 minutes for our food to arrive.

I've been going to The Locals for years and it has always been one of my favourite brunch places. I like that it is located in a place where there's not this crazy hustle and bustle, the cafe and surrounding area are very relaxed.

The restaurant itself has its own natural beauty, it's never trying too hard yet always looks aesthetically pleasing.

The food has always been great, over the years bits and bobs of the menu have changed but I have always loved the menu even with the new additions. Currently my favourite dish is the Shakshuka.

The waiters have always been so lovely and accommodating.

I should add it's an incredibly child friendly place to eat, the staff are great with kids and the cafe itself provides sanitised high chairs and kiddie crayons with colouring papers.

In these trying times the Cafe has been great accommodating to the Covid regulations and everything was highly sanitised regularly and everyone was sat at a distance, as well as masks being enforced whenever away from your table and staff wearing masks full time.

If you can't tell already I really love the The Locals Cafe.

Over priced. Although menu has few healthy options food quantity / quality could be better given prices. Difficult to order. Service slow. Always seem to find ways to charge extras.

This is a great place, but my 4 stars are due to the fact that none of the staff in this establishment were wearing masks.
I'd like to support them during this time, but sadly I won't be back due to lack of masks

The best pumpkin pancakes I have eaten in my life. Lovely atmosphere and customer service absolutely spectacular. You have to experience it on your own.... words can’t simply describe it all. Definitely recommend and surely coming back for more pancakes. Karolina the waitress so beyond helpful.

Love this place but wasnt impressed this time. Food came first and then waited for drinks which was not nicely placed on the table. Pancakes were good though maybe a bit more sauce on the side would have been better

The allergen menu was not always clear to staff. The vegan options were incredibly limited and not always clear-cut on the menu itself.
It would have been nice to have a vegan option on the pancakes or more vegan brunch options other than avocado on toast. Was disappointed overall
