Saturday morning, friendly staff but waited for our coffees too long. A shame no crispy German breadrolls in the basket just baguette and rye bread.

I loved the food at this charming restaurant as well as the delightful quiet atmosphere. The decor of the restaurant is also quite lovely and welcoming. The slow roasted shoulder lamb with quinoa was delicious and the dessert, a coconut ice-cream and white chocolate with...More
