Lovely cafe serving tasty food and drinks that cater for all dietary needs. I am gluten free and had no problem finding lots of choices for lunch and sweet treats. Also has lots of vegetarian and vegan options. The service is excellent too!

I come here a few times a week, breakfast, coffee or lunch. Often have business meetings here. I love the ethos, the quality of food is outstanding and the selection is very good, especially for the health conscious.
