I only ordered takeaway coffee, but was shown a seat and given a cold water while I was waiting. Everyone smiled, and while I was distracted my order was delivered to me piping hot and with a smile.

Would have been a nice meal if the toast and bacon wasn’t over cooked. Service was good staff friendly however our meals took quite some time to come. Great prices! Wasn’t too loud either.

We had dinner one night and take away coffees the next morning and both are well recommended. The steamed bao buns for entree were lovely. They serve great craft beers and the staff do a good job. The take away coffee is pretty good too.
