Amazing find for brunch today. Emma the owner from Canada was so welcoming. Had Avacadotoast with goat cheese, maple bacon and an egg. So tastey, fresh and light. Had a passion fruit mamosa and a watermelon mamosa so fresh!

The menu is pretty hipster, and there are plenty of cocktails on it. There are good veggie options. The fresh fruit juice was great.
