We go to Locals most weekends because it is our local and therefore easy for us, but also because they never disappoint. We have coffee and a slice and sit outside weather permitting. Our last visit we tried a Dutch slice 'Speculaas', delicious! Our coffee...More

Great space, large and open, with areas for children to play, and ample seating outside. It would easily accommodate pulling a few tables together for larger groups and the entire sense is cruisey and easy. Food and coffee are both solid winners, so you're not...More
