I love searching out independent and hipster coffee bars and this one is very good. The coffee was excellent and the decor the right side of hipster. Unlike many cafes that cannot prepare toast I enjoyed the toast I had for breakfast. I felt fortunate that my breakfast was late so I could laze with my laptop and enjoy reading the paper.

Previously I stated that they had confused my orders, while this was true, since then I have been back a great number of times and each time I have been wonderfully satisfied.

I am now of the opinion that it was teething problems as they were quite new when I went there.

They have given me excellent service, great coffee and a really, really good playlist.

All in all, great. Would definitely recommend.

Coffee is superb and the wrap I ordered didn't look as good as the breakfast but was par for the course I'd say.

Both food and beverage menu is extensive and well thought out. The service is friendly and fabulous, but can be slow over peak times. Check out he daily specials!
