I've dined at Mr Brightside a number of times for breakfast, lunch and something sweet in between, as the light airy atmosphere and location overlooking the street below has drawn me in. Overall I have found them to be very inconsistent in all areas. I...More

Popped in to check out new menu hoping to see the delish soup with cheese on sourdough on the side dish. Alas, no. Ordered cheese and salad on brown instead. The coffee was welcome and wish I could say the same for the sandwich. There...More
