I came with my boyfriend for breakfast, I must say it was nice and filling however we both got cold coffee which is a bit sad as we expected a bit more. Apart from that, I would recommend this place.

Went for breakfast. Will never be going there again or recommend to anyone.....EVER!!! The manager is rude and a bare faced liar. She really needs training on customer service. Never experienced such behaviour at any restaurant. Totally disgusted with this place!!
