    What a great deal. $79 for 2 hours of bottomless brunch with the best breakfast cocktails - bloody Marys and espresso martinis. The crew were so friendly and accommodating. So fun sitting in the sun on the balcony watching the passing parade.

    Food was okay, ordered fritters. They were not very warm upon arrival and egg on too was undercooked for me. Location great. Staff helpful.

    Great food and service, and the breakfast and lunch menus have something for everyone. Their healthy options (lots of veggies) are tasty, but the burger and salmon benny are delicious. A fun place for brunch, and the staff are always welcoming and friendly.

    We had booked in the morning through Open Table and when we turned up for our reservation in the afternoon, they had no knowledge of our booking. We were then told multiple times that if we are going to book “last minute” then we should call and make a booking instead. We were then sat on a table outside that had no protection from the rain and felt very unwelcome by the staff. We ended up leaving and going elsewhere.

The food and drinks were beautifully presented and delicious. The cafe itself is gorgeous, clean and in a great location. We will be back ASAP!

    Waiters were lovely but it took a while to take our order, and the food then took a while to come out. But the food and coffee was excellent, great brunch spot.

    Friendly, professional, and comfortable. Sitting inside by a large open window, looking out onto a wall of green trees, dappled morning light, water is immediately brought over, offered a coffee or a drink to start with, and I'm feeling happy. Service like this is the ultimate. Attentive without being obsequious. Great food. All too easy to recommend.
