Just had a Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese Bagal in this place. Absolutely perfect. Coke in glass bottles as well. Friendly helpful staff & good location. Sadly it's closing on 30th October due to being sold to developers😬.

Great place to have a snack and drink. They have indoor and outdoor seating. We stayed inside. I personally enjoyed watching Caroline preparing drinks and she went out of her way attending us and making sure we were comfortable. Thank you Caroline.

We had brunch here on a Sunday morning and really enjoyed it. I had the migas, which were fine and my wife had the yogurt parfait, which she enjoyed. Great atmosphere and good food.

We stayed at the Austin Motel and this little snack bar is kind of connected to the motel which made it easy to grab a drink and play family games with the kido. They showed a move on the wall and had interesting drinks made...More
