Have been here a couple of times for brunch. Portions are always generous and food tasty. I would highly recommend the smashed avocado with beetroot. Great little spot for a catch up with friends. Unfortunately service can be slow.

Smoothie great, breakfast great! Decent prices and it filled us up before a long walk along the river. I love the fact they give you sweets with your receipt, really nice touch.
