Quite the worst service I've had in a long time. Phone-booked but no record thereof. Placed our order - got iced coffee instead of hot chocolate (and it's winter time!). Then after half-an-hour asked "Where's our order?" - no reaction and again after a 50-minute...More

Marvellous breakfast and lunch spot, something for everyone on the menu, friendly service and great food. Free wifi (always people on couches with laptops and coffee), good meeting place for business or pleasure.

Besides the address (map location) being wrong (should be 23 Milner Road), the coffee and croissant were very good. Service was very friendly and prompt. The view is very impressive. Highly recommended.
