First visit to this place and another great TA recommendation. Be prepared to wait as its very popular but service is quick and efficient so the waits not that long. Certainly not the cheapest bruncht in town but well cooked, with quality ingredients and served...More

OMG this place is hidden gem on what is generally not a very nice street. The cakes in here are amazing. I tried the victoria sponge (my fav) and rice krispie mars bar slice.
