Stopped in for a few salads and a sandwich and were pleasantly surprised with the variety of salads available and diverse flavor/presentation of each. We also ordered a salmon sandwich and coffee which were both well done and everything was very fresh. Because of location, this place would be easy to miss as it's not on the main drag of restaurants but that was a huge benefit for us as it was a quiet, locals-only spot to get away from the crowds just a few steps away from the craziness. Well done Mug Shot!

Lovely staff. A little pricey but great options. Had two salads and a delisious quiche recommended by staff for vegetarians.

This was our first visit to "Mug Shot" Fantastic selection of tasty, healthy food. Great to see so much gluten free food available as well as vegetarian. Despite that fact that they were so busy, the staff were most helpful and friendly. The atmosphere was great, (buzzing) We had the tomato soup, it was a little too thick for my liking (a little milk added may have solved the problem) but it was hot, tasty and very very filling! It was served with lovely brown bread. No room for any dessert or coffee. I really recommend this place. Will be back later this year.

I have been here with relations and by myself in the last month and I found the staff unfriendly except one new girl that's serving there, there was a problem with the food and I wasent even given an apology, It was like they didn't care, also slow service, and overall dissatisfied.

I cannot speak too highly of this place! Everything served is top quality. This is not fine dining and I think it is unfair to criticise it for not being so. What it is, is a top-class café serving great, tasty, healthy food and lovely teas and coffee. The chowder is particularly spectacular and could probably feed a family! The staff are outstandingly helpful and efficient. Do not let negative reviews put you off.
