    What a lovely lunch we had. Service was excellent, the girl who served us was so nice and friendly! The food was really good and also a slice of cake for later! Only negative food portion for my eggs and toast, could have done with another slice of toast. Half sourdough wasn't enough. Would recommend though

    The skillet of baked eggs was miserable in portion for the £15. Single end in Glasgow is far superior. Toilets were not great either. Not a warming cafe tbh.

    First time here but will definitely be back. Excellent food and service. A bit pricier than some other brunch venues but worth every penny. Quality ingredients cooked and presented really well. Eggs poached beautifully and spinach and mushroom sides very tasty. Best coffee I've had since being in Melbourne and that is saying something.

    I ordered Eggs Benny with crispy bacon. While the bacon was lovely, the amount of Hollandaise sauce I was given was so little that I could see unbuttered dry muffin underneath. A really stingy serving. My friend got the Hummus bowl, which was literally a bowl of hummus with a bit of dressing and two salad leaves finely chopped sprinkled on top. This is a side dip, not a main dish. All extremely disappointing and not worth the money. Table and service were good.

    First time eating here wanting breakfast prior to attending funeral. Chose here after reading some very positive reviews of the place. Must say was not disappointed. Was uncertain about trying the oat milk turmeric latte but was assured by waitress Jessica that it was awesome and worth a try. How right she was! As was the food. I had the eggs Benny with vegetarian haggis, wife had the eggs with chipolte and chorizo. Eggs perfectly cooked to order and everything was tasty. Service from Jessica was smooth, friendly and professional. I will certainly be returning. Ambience was relaxed. A very positive experience. Not the cheapest place to have breakfast but certainly worth the money, pricey but very nicey!

    Really enjoyed the visit to Urban Angel. The food was lovely and the service was great. However, I would say that the food was maybe a little overpriced and therefore would consider this this venue to be more of a treat option than a regular place to visit

    Cosy atmosphere, attentive service. Had the baked Eggs which were delicious, portion sourdough too small as was difficult to eat without bread. There used to be a hot Ginger and apple drink in the menu, which has been removed. This drink was the main reason for choosing urban Angel, please bring it back! . However lemongrass tea was lovely

    The food and setting is lovely. Much bigger inside than it looks from the outside. Great selection of food, drinks and sweet treats. I had the chorizo eggs benny which was delish. Sadly the service just wasn’t very good. A few of the staff just really didn’t seem to want to be there. My first impression was that the front of house host looked pretty miserable. Our coffee was cold by the time our food came. Would be quite reluctant to go back.
