Very clean and tidy, helpful staff but most of all superb pastries and coffee. The best Portuguese custard tarts outside of Portugal.

Went en famille for coffee before shops opened (Bond Court location). Very satisfactory coffee. Barista made effort with his chat. Pleasant surroundings. Remember to sport your man bun and sleeve tattoo.

This was our second visit to this fantastic expresso bar. We were greeted with a warm welcome having being remembered from our previous visit the week before.. fantastic coffees and artisan food. Fabulous traditional recipes, genuine Italian imports makes for a wonderful experience.

Whether it's before work in the morning, late morning, early afternoon or after work it's a regular place to visit for me. Little oasis of happiness in the hustle and bustle of the city centre.

This is a great discovery. Situated in Bond Court just off Park Row, an authentic, achingly cool and relaxed cafe/coffee house. Excellent coffee, excellent food, excellent service. On sunny days, plenty of outside seating too. You could be in a piazza in Milan!

Visited the Bond Court branch again. Great coffee, fantastic food (especially the Italian pastries!) and friendly welcoming staff. I can see us becoming regulars 😊☕️
