I’m completely baffled by the amount of people that think this place is amazing. The food here is so bland and basic I would think twice before recommending it to anyone to eat here. A group of us eat here and the starters were varied,...More

Great atmosphere, the smell of fresh coffee and baked goods when you enter is just the beginning of the journey! Simple seating area, which doesn't feel crowded is great for couples and meeting with friends. The food was appetising, I left feeling full and happy!...More

Their food is simple but tasty and cheap. The deserts didn’t look fresh though. Good for casual lunch or dinner.
