The coffee one of the best ever . Dont miss this little gem if you are visiting the nearby Leighton House museum.

This is a gem of a place. Don't be deceived that it looks small from the outside, our group of eight found seats together easily on both occasions. The smoothies / juice drinks are amazing. They do breakfasts, coffee and superb cakes - such a selection it's hard to choose - and lunches. Service is quick and efficient; the staff... More

Pleasant and efficient front of house staff. We had poached eggs with fresh hollandaise and generous smoked salmon and avocado on sourdough, and quiche/ salad combination. Easy to mess those up, but they were very nicely made indeed. Pricing was sensible, there were some interesting soft drink options, and I had an Aperol spritz for the lolz (actually very good...

Quality coffee and nice selection of tasty home made cakes. Great value for money (they do have £4.50 offer for a coffee + cake), and very attentive service. Highly recommended!

We stopped here for lunch during a recent visit to the Design Museum. They have lots of breakfast items, and a somewhat limited lunch selection, with half a dozen sandwiches and a few salads. The staff were very pleasant and efficient, and we thoroughly enjoyed our Mediterranean salads, a variation on Salade Nicoise

Best coffee, service and breakfast iv'e had in years. Best scrambled eggs you'll probably eat ever. The sausage was beautiful (and I live in a pork farming area where sausages are sacred). The juice we had was to die for. Visit this cafe if your in the area and I'm sure you'll not be dissappppinted

Dare those little gem of a place as we were walking down the street. The cakes in the window are very alluring. Had two marvelous breakfasts, two delicious cakes, and two strong flavorful coffees. Prices were very reasonable and the service was excellent. Will return and highly recommended.
