Went to this cafe twice in a week, both times full but didn’t have to wait too long for a table. Food was excellent and lots of it! Loved the photography on the walls and of course exquisite views too outside. Really recommend the cakes...More

Lovely menu of Kiwi inspired dishes coupled with some irresistible home baking. Lots of very attentive and friendly staff. Try the beans on toast for a very “upmarket” and delicious take on the family staple. Highly recommended.

Came with my wife for a bit of breakfast. We had the all day breakfast with a coffee. To be fair, the quality of the food on the plate was very good and very well cooked, but not worth £11.70 each. Toast slices were nearly...More
