Lovely little place that has a quirky design. Staff are all really friendly and accommodating. Food was really tasty and when we mentioned our dairy allergy they offered to swap sour cream for something we could have. Definitely recommend going if you fancy a laid back and yummy meal out.

This place has a nice patio and the happy hour cocktails were nice. I had the calamari which was subpar, so I'm not sure I would recommend eating here.

My favourite coffee shop, comfortable with plenty to look at, situated looking straight down Taylor Square. I always order iced coffee. I'm a regular.

The service may be terribly un-attentive and unprofessional but you can expect to experience great food and AMAZING Sangria! The sangria was surprisingly largely served in a carafe (1L) and filled with fruit, originally bought for just 1 person - I ended up sharing with 2 more :) The burgers were delightful and you can't go past their sweet potato...

I came here for a solo dinner. It's located at the corner of Taylor and Oxford Streets. Its atmosphere is shabby-bohemian.
