Did had a nice family time enjoying English breakfast while listening to smooth music on a Sunday morning. Breakfast sliders and eggs Bénédicte were good. Large choice of tea and even children tea is available. Nice service.

I ordered a soy latte and I got a latte with real milk, which would have been fine if it wasn't for the fact that I'm vegan and drank some. When I asked the girl to double check with the other girl who made it and confirmed it was real milk neither apologised and they both acted as if it... More

Always a great place for lunch we regularly visit when we head for a wander along Byres Road. Great range of tea (love the tablet tea combination) and the soup is always great. Club sandwich and crayfish sandwich also a good choice. Forget the diet too and have one of the fab cupcakes. Very good value warm and friendly staff.

Thank Tim K
