Rustic table settings, the smell of good coffee brewing and an overall earthy and casual café feel with an abundance of delicious food displayed at the front counter. First impressions are great.
The menu is thoughtful and even though I have become somewhat of a regular, I’m constantly tempted to sample more. Something as classic as a poached chicken sandwich is done so well using the freshest country grain bread and well poached tender chicken. The sticky five spice chicken with Vietnamese coleslaw is my personal pick, but some of the fan favourites come from the tasty all day breakfast options like crispy dukkah crusted eggs or decadent smoked salmon and sweet corn blini’s – so good!
Personally I don’t have a massive sweet tooth but the cupcakes and muffins – especially the gluten free varieties, will definitely tempt you. The adjoining larder is also worth perusing while you grab a takeaway latte for the road.
