Lattes were very weak and not worth the money charged. The breakfast had some kind of fluff on part of the haggis, most of the breakfast microwaved and over-cooked. The presentation of it wasn't great - the toast came on top of an already over...More

It's just a comfy, cosy little cafe, the staff are good, the food tasty and it has a nice vibe' to it. Have a cup of Assam tea and relax before taking on any more of the city.
