Love this place. Almost a daily visitor during the weekend for breakfast. Great coffee, and I the scrambled tofu on toast is a lovely alternative to scrambled eggs. Currently working on getting them to stock veggie sausages too.

Super, fresh food in a relaxed atmosphere, with friendly and fast service. We came for breakfast and wanted to return again for lunch! The coffee is very good, fresh juices are excellent and the food really hit the spot. This is now a firm favourite.

Love this cafe, been coming here 6 months now. It’s having a revamp so a bit more room inside for the winter. The food is really good, fresh and healthy. Best eatery and social / business hookup in town .
