A very busy little cafe with lots of waiting staff of the student variety, keen and very nice. I had the eggs Benedict, a dish I really like, and this was very good, perhaps they could have given me a little more hollandaise but mayne I am just being greedy. Good for lunch.

Fabulous outdoor area for sunny days with nice little touches like sun hats and suncream. Staff super friendly and efficient and food good. Breakfast summer salad a must for lunch or eggs benedict or with salmon yummy for brekkie. Coffees real good too. This place is a must go if you're around that area

Had been told that this was a great place for breakfast so arrived on a bright sunny Sunday morning. the place was busy with lots of staff serving inside and out. i ordered eggs royale, a double shot cappucino and a glass of iced water from a very pleasant young woman. The eggs arrived and they were excellent - eggs perfectly cooked, lovely smooth homemade hollandaise, good quality smoked salmon and muffin - the only problem was they were half eaten and water and coffee had still not arrived. Finally, after getting a servers attention, the water arrived shortly after but the food was all eaten by the time the coffee arrived. In fairness - they only charged me €5 due to the faulty service. Greta food, lovely atmosphere and a service glitch. Recommended.
