My husband & I love Lekker. The SJ & The Whipper are delicious! Coffee is fantastic 99.9% of the time but every so often there’s one that’s a tad burnt but still drinkable. Service is always lovely. Their hollandaise is the best I’ve had.

Enjoyed my breakfast. The wait staff got our orders and many other orders wrong on the day. I have been before when they were much better.

Delicious! Parking was easy. It’s not a hipster coffee shop, it was comfortable and the food was amazing! Coffee delicious and the service was fast and friendly, If I’d found it earlier we would have been regulars over our two week visit

Was sat down at a table for 4. Asked for some water while we looked at the menu. Waited. Watched as people after us were seated receive their coffee and food. Walked out.

Sorry I don't remember. But I do remember there was a few on the menu. Basically they had quite a mixed menu of food for all. Covered all the bases.
