Our first attempt to eat here saw us turned away as they were fully booked - even at mid-day! Two pre-booked visits later, the food is consistently excellent, tasty, varied and inventive; from snacks, to main courses and the cakes. A relaxed yet stylish cafe,...More

I love this place. The food is reliably excellent and tea comes in a big pot. From salad to cake I have never been disappointed. I would recommend anyone to visit regardless of whether or not they follow a vegetarian diet.
