“Excellent vegetarian eggs benedict! A local gem!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

I have lived in the neighbourhood for 8 years and only tried this restaurant for the first time about 3 weeks ago. My friend who is not even a vegetarian recommended this dish (as I am vegetarian) and 3 of us went for brunch on a sunny Sundat afternoon in the back garden and was very pleasantly surprised. Can't believe it took me so long to find this place. Will definitely be back!

“A hidden garden...”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

Why haven't we know about this before? Loved it in the sun!

Very good food and service. Waitstaff that smile as well as the chef serving tables. A hands-on establishment that can go far.

We'll be back soon...

“Good place for breakfast”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

I was staying at the nearby Swiss Cottage Best Western hotel, where the breakfast was £11 and got bad reviews. Came here instead and had a good coffee and excellent cooked breakfast for a few pounds less. Super. And incredibly convenient for Finchley Road station to zip into town after.

“A perfect Sunday breakfast”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

I love this place. Great, quiet atmosphere, perfect for whiling away the time on a lazy Sunday noon, sitting and reading a book - accompanied by a full English breakfast to die for. Would come here again and again, either with friends or even solo.

“Lovely garden, fab central location”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Situated steps from Finchley rd tube station, this cafe with a stunning walled garden is a real find. The service was friendly though very busy today on a bank holiday but the food came astoundingly fast... A bit too fast in the case of the eggs Benedict which had to go back as a bit too runny. The dish was replaced super fast and with no fuss whatsoever. My salad was delicious and fresh and the fish Cake was beautifully prepared and tasty though heavy on the potato and maybe over generous portion size. Smaller size but better quality dish might be a better bet but overall great impression and lovely coffee. I will go back on other lovely sunny days.
