“Self Proclaimed Best Burger”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014

There are plenty of other options in the area that have to offer better food and service. Burger was nothing to write home about, but it was unique to get burger served with onion ring and vinegar based cole slaw. Servers tried but were horrid, one was more interested in making phone call than attending to new batch of customers...it took nearly 5 mins for table next to me to get 3 glasses of wine.

Went for breakfast. Cosy little cafe with outside seating and friendly staff. Had sausage and egg sandwich and tea, lovely. Newspapers available to read.

“Nice breakfast and lunch restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013 via mobile

I have been here several times and the atmosphere and food is very good. Small restaurant with a big heart. Good variety on the breakfast menu makes me stop there before I go to work.

“A little jem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

We found this place by accident and a very good find it was. A small, nicely decorated restaurant, the menu of the day (spaghetti) was hot,delicious and a generous portion, the staff were friendly and not pushy. 2 mains 2 coffees and a bottle of decent wine, a good meal in nice surroundings, not the cheapest but hey this is Mayfair, will definitely return.
