This is a great place to eat good food in a pleasant environment. I sometimes take my laptop and do a little work by the window. The deli is a great place to find something new and delicious!

I'm a sucker for the avocados on toast. They are superb. Coffee great. I'm not a fan of the seating but can put up with it for the great food and coffee

We had breakfast here. I had the Spanish frittata which was delicious. Lots of gluten free options. The decor is really cool. They also sell bottles of wine.

We visited for breakfast only so I can only comment on the coffee and the avocado/tomato sourdough both of which were excellent. This is a place very suited to the single diner which is lovely when you need to duck in between doing messages.
