SERVICE WAS FRIENDLY, EFFICIENT, GOOD HUMOURED

WE WERE A PARTY OF ELEVEN, FIRST CUSTOMERS, FOR A BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

MY FRIED EGGS ARRIVED QUICKLY - AND WERE COLD!

PRECOOKED, THEN TOO-BRIEFLY MICROWAVED?

APPALLED, DISAPPOINTED, EMBARRASSED AS HOST

Spot On is always spot on. The food is very tasty and presented attractively. Since Covid the choice is narrower (and understandably more expensive), but everything on the menu looks delicious. The staff are welcoming and attentive, and parking is easy. What's not to like!

A super friendly cafe with great fresh food. It accommodates for several food intolerances and dislikes. The menu gets refreshed from time to time to get new items. I love this place, highly recommend!

We had a very enjoyable experience at Spot On. The food was presented very nicely and tasted as good as it looked. It was abundant and we left feeling satisfied. My colleague , who attended for the first time, expressed her gratitude for the introduction and expressed her desire to return. Thye handled the whole COVID arrangement very professionally and you wouldn't have known that we were dining out in extraordinary times. Spot on, Spot On!!

B"H My cousin and I came just for coffee and spent a quiet time talking without being hassled to order food. So it is great to find a kosher restaurant where one is able to just order a coffee....will definitely be back to order a larger meal.

Amazing vegetarian, kosher restaurant with great vegan options. The staff are friendly, approachable and very knowledgeable about the menu, giving you the best experience for breakfast, brunch and lunch. The fresh pastries and cakes are the best accompaniment for their great assortment of teas, coffees and milkshakes.
I highly recommend this cafe!
