A group of us had lunch in there yesterday. Although the lunch menu is very limited, everyone picked either the burger or chicken goujons. The third and last lunch option was the catch of the day with chip. They had others things on the menu but not lunchie. Long story short, all of us were very satisfied and we'll definitely return on a regular basis.

Lovely atmosphere, attentive service, and most amazingly, a great choice of vegetarian / vegan options which were cooked with great care and imagination. Would highly recommend.

Had breakfast here with my brother the other morning. It was a glorious sunny day so we sat outside in the terrace. My dog was with us and they were so accommodating and gave her a big bowel of water. The place was buzzing my brother had eggs benedict and I had the crossfit terminator omelet as I am a crossfitter of course I had to order it!!! My bro was slagging me but it was delish. Lovely friendly staff too looking forward to returning soon.

Just had a coffee with my friend who had brunch. Stunning ambience sitting outside. Gorgeous coffee. I think they were a bit short staffed on the day but got the impression the service would generally be stronger that our experience

Service is diabolical, and yet I go back time and again because their eggs are fantastic, and there is a decent kids' menu. However, you can be waiting a long time as it's always packed, and there is inevitably something either missing or wrong with order every time. And there seems to be 20 staff floating around, all equally incompetent. Maddening. Nobody seems to care at all when your lunch is ruined by something not arriving, and it's almost impossible to ever find a manager or anyone with an ounce of sense of how to deal with customers in the place. Still, there's a great buzz. Don't sit near the door or you'll freeze. Do order the Eggs Royale!

Myself and my gf had been wanting to try a brunch here for quite a bit as upon passing by on a Sunday lunch time there does be ques out the door. on arrival it was very busy but we got decent seats close to the door, but unfortunately it became quite cold at times with the incoming outgoing. service was a bit inconsistent, waiting for order and food for quite some time but i suppose to be expected with the crowd, my gf ordered a hot chocolate which she really enjoyed and i had a nice cappuccino. we had an omelette and a full Irish, they were both grand, we will be a little more adventurous the next time, as we prob will return we both felt we probably should have tried one of the egg dishes like the benedict for example.

It was my first time here, I met my two friends for breakfast and I had a baby with me in a buggy. We were told to sit wherever we liked so we picked a circular table near the door. The way they have used the space is fantastic, there was plenty of room for the buggy and for several others near the door. We were given menus, myself and one girl the porridge, a huge portion with honey on top and the other girl had granola with rhubarb which she loved. I also had a coffee and baby had a portion of delicious looking home-made white bread. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. I would love to go back.
