A friend and I walked in off the street for lunch during the week. Initially Cafe seemed busy but there were some tables tucked away which suited us perfectly. The service was great, good explanation of the menu and a very welcoming server.

We had a really nice brunch sitting outside. Good hot coffee, very attentive service and the food was of a high standard. The omelette was tasty and well presented as were the other meals, the French toast and the salmon hash. I recommend this cafe.
