The Railroad on Morning Lane isn't going to be somewhere you stumble upon, unless, that is, you have been bussed in for one of the other-worldly fashion tours taking in the Burberry or Aquascutum outlets slumming it with Tescos a few blocks away, or, maybe,...More

Very good Sunday brunch.This cafe/restaurant is small and very cosy. I had the Morrocan eggs which were delicious and I also shared the tortilla with my friend. The tortilla was good however maybe a bit small given the price (£6.80). I will definitely go back...More
