First time visiting England, had a late breakfast here. Been looking forward to trying black pudding and was not disappointed. Nice cafe in a busy section of the city. Food was delicious and atmosphere was superb for a Sunday morning.

I’ve been here before and it was lovely. Today they didn’t have their act together at all. My partners food was lovely he said. I didn’t get to eat as their allergy/intolerance management was atrocious and unsafe.

Breakfast here is very good indeed and the veggie sausages taste so nice. Service is warm & welcoming and this place caters to all, so it's well worth trying if you're looking for something to eat or drink.
