We dropped in last week to get some coffees for a business meeting. Service and coffees were ok. Was slow getting the coffees which was unusual since it looked relatively quiet. Overall the lasting impression wasn't great.

We were at their doorstep upon opening and this didn't phase the staff who were happy to provide a coffee while we settled into a table large enough for both of us to read the paper! I had a delicious bacon and scrambled eggs!
