A great, local cafe just off Finchley Road. Reasonable Prices for a cafe in London, more expensive than a "greasy spoon" but not as pricey as more fancy cafes. Breakfasts/brunch are their best meals with large portions and many options. Service is swift and not chatty. One can linger and eat and read here with friends, families, couples, or on your own. Large outdoor garden area with shade and sun. They offer a special afternoon coffee and cake deal. Full range of coffees. They sometimes have roast specials for lunches/dinners. No need to book.

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!

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...

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.

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.
