This buzzy little place at the back of Domestic Science is a great find. Fab coffee and delicious cakes or great salads and dishes for lunch. Good value and a nice atmosphere. Very informal. Worth a visit.

What a find. Lovely food, quirky ambience. Reasonable priced menu. Check out stores on other levels in the building before you leave too. Amazing.

I had no idea this place existed until recently. Deceiving by its small appearance from the street, it is actually very spacious and has a lovely garden too. The food was scrummy, will definately be returning soon.
