Great bar, great food and great people customers and staff. Even though we were slightly older than the average customer we were made to feel very welcome over the 5 days we visited. Favourite place for breakfast and a drink in the evening .

Stumbled into this spot while doing laundry next door and loved it. Excellent eggs and oatmeal, lovely service, good coffee. The kind of place you could spend the whole day in.
