Luckily found this place again. A great place to have lunch. We had fish soup and plum cake with cheese and ginger. Delicious and the staff are really nice as well. Thank you.

This food hall has a fabulous selection of hot food and salads from the middle East, Morocco and Jamaica with amazing cakes. The quality of the food is outstanding and the range of food is expanding all the time. We have been a number of times and definitely recommend that you make it a priority to have lunch here when...

A small cafe on the side of St Nicholas Market with an organic food shop attached. Great vibe for brunch on a sunny weekend morning. Perhaps a bit pricey and not exactly a feast of food, but what you get is very nice, well-presented and you certainly get the impression that it is fresh and sourced locally. I had the... More

£5.00 for 2 small pancakes is a bit much. My companion had the vegan breakfast, which, in contrast, was good portion and nicely presented. Coffee was nice as well. I like this place for its ambiance and ethical face; but they should work on customer satisfaction. I will certainly come back, as they need to be supported; but that loyalty... More

The cooking is always interesting and tastes very good, but on too many occasions, helpings have been on the small side. It was like that today. Had the fish and vegetable casserole - 2 slices of carrot, a 3cm piece of leek, and a small piece of some other veg, plus a very modest amount of fish. That's all. I'm... More

Just popped in for lunch and went for the sardines on toast which was fresh, zingy and well put together. In short superb. The sort of simple effective stuff that Jamie's should be doing instead of the terrible meal I had there last week. The perfect antidote.

I wanted to buy some decent cheese and asked in St Nicholas market. They sent me here to be met by a treasure trove of really good food. A fantastic butchery with a huge range of game fowl: Mallard, Pheasant, Teal, Grouse, Pigeon and Snipe. Fabulous Cheese selection and Italian salamis plus breads and jars of tasty stuff. A proper...

Poached egg over cooked, toast arrived as soft bread. Very disappointed. If you are looking for breakfast go elsewhere

Lovely place for breakfast. I had egg and soldiers which took me back to my childhood, and my partner had a bacon sandwich which was really nice. Quite reasonably priced and friendly staff.

The food was nice but not spectacular for the price asked. The ingredients were fresh but the confection was really simple. Something a bit more elaborated would fit better the price asked.
