Fabulous little eatery. Food is amazing and the service second to none. The Stornaway eggs are to die for. Go when you’re in town.

I've been an on-off patron here. On the plus side, you are guaranteed fresh ingredients and the high quality of the bread in your simple and home-cooked style brunch. And that's that. On the downside, for a vegetarian, there isn't much to look forward to....More

Thanks John, Your review really makes a difference. And I'm glad you enjoyed your toastie! Unusual combo but it's a firm favourite already! Plus it's vegan 👌😊
