Absolute gem. Simple breakfast menu but executed consistently well always to a high standard. Fresh, quality ingredients - proper bakers bread, salty bacon, meaty sausages, great coffee. Great atmosphere - always a buzz.

Popped in here for a coffee, lovely feel about the place, very busy but staff didn’t seem phased and were very friendly. We didn’t eat but the food being served to other customers looked lovely and big portion sizes
