Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Really good, freshly cooked breakfasts (one normal, one veggie with hallloumi). Arrived quickly, large portions and loads of toast to go with it. Coffee was great too

Enjoyed a delicious Poached Egg Royale today, the smoked salmon was super fresh and the service was bright and bubbly. A bargain at £12 with a Flat White. A hidden gem in the city centre, I will be back!

Go here at your peril. Terrible experience Venue ran by children. 2 people claiming to be manager and unable to rectify issues. Bad food, bad service, bad experience If I had a choice between here and dining at Guantanamo I would choose the later. If...I never went here again it would be too soonMore

Breakfast was absolutely outstanding. I had the veggie breakfast and my husband had the full breakfast. All ingredients fresh and tasted so good. There is a fantastic range of food on the menu with the added bonus of healthy options.

We stopped by for some lunch after travelling and were not disappointed. We came in at a good time before it got quite busy with the lunchtime rush. The selection is great and the staff were friendly when they were dealing with us. Definitely recommended...for a classy cafe/brunch date.More

My friend and I dropped in here for lunch. The food was delicious, it arrived in an instant and was really reasonably priced. We probably spent about half as much as we would have done in a national branded chain. I couldn't recommend it more...highly.More
