Had the mushroom and quinoa and it was amazing. Coffee was also great. Will definitely come back. The Art Deco furniture and China certainly takes you back. A real surprise.

This is a lovely cafe that has tasty food and interesting crafts to look at and buy. It's not as noisy as a main street cafe and never as crowded which makes it nice and relaxing. I recommend this place.
