Great little place in a souterrain. Very easy going atmosphere; LP's om the wall, sofa's and easy going seating arrangements. Great for lunch, breakfast or a bite to eat in between. Well priced (there's quite a difference in prices between taking to go or sitting in; approx a pound difference for the stoof). The stew was tasty and filling, the... More

Often go here because they have a wide selection of lunches - soups and stews served with bread, large range of sandwiches, toasties, cakes and coffees.

Great food, freshly cooked for a good price. The bagels are so packed with filling you need a knife and fork. Service is quick which is impressive considering its cooked fresh to order. A great lunch time treat - we'll be back!

Packed with office workers and tourists in the know, this is not only a find but a genuinely great place. Open from 7 till 3, it aims at the breakfast and lunch trade only, Mon through Fri. Good portions, quick(ish) service and friendly banter.

Excellent! Interesting range of sandwiches bagels and paninis! Not your usual standard bog stuff( although I am sure they will be happy to make up a cheese and ham sarni); soups also different and stew!! Something different!

I had lunch with my classmates at the branch in art school. A blond kitchen lady came to push the chairs into the table behind us. She took our bags then dropped on the ground heavily. My friends and I heard of that, and my friend said there are Macs inside for £2000. She ignored that. After it, we checked... More

It's a great little place for toasted sandwiches. Had the chicken one and half of a sausage toastie. The little side potatoes are only okay; you could just ask to leave them off. If you want a quick, solid lunch, stop in and grab an Irn-Bru and a toastie. The desserts are really good too.

Googled some where for brunch and this was one of the places that popped up. The menu was varied and unusual so that warranted a visit. Not disappointed at all.. Get yourself to the 'Monkey' you'd be bananas to not.

Thank ABH542
