It is a small and cosy cafe. We had the full Scottish breakfast and the vegetarian one, which were both very good. The portions are quite big and the staff is friendly.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.

grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
