Wonderful independent cafe that makes all its own cakes and breads on site. Friendly welcoming service and amazing food. Will definitely be back! This is a bad place for a diet though.

I come in here quite often and the people who work here are just AMAZING. I’ve never been comfortable going somewhere on my own but they make me feel so welcome. The BEST vegan breakfast I’ve ever had. Really good coffee too. Thank you 🙏
