Love this place! The coffee is one of the best I've ever had with great dairy free milk options. The food is always, always awesome with delicious vegan options. My son adores the pancakes! Highly recommended x

Went here because of its number one trip advisor rating for breakfasts and wasn't disappointed. You can get your traditional fry up if you want but I went for the chorizo hash and frazzled egg special. An interesting and tasty change for breakfast. You could...More
