The food is consistently good and the service excellent. Familiar staff faces who know their jobs and have been trained and looked after. The menu is refreshingly diverse and caters for everyone.

From the outside and name it looks like a tiny little coffee shop nothing out of the ordinary but on a warm day walk through to the courtyard where you find yourself in the cutest little garden setting. The food is good and well worth...More
