Visiting during the Christmas period and thankfully stumbled across this cafe. Amazing selection of healthy breakfast options at reasonable prices for the size you get! Finally a cafe that isn’t pretentious in the price of an avocado and actually provide a decent serving size. Coffee...More

Went there this morning with my wife and ordered the Huevos Rancheros for myself and a side of eggs on toast with haloumi for my wife. I couldn't believe the generous portion sizes for the sides. If this was my regular local cafe I would...More
