This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
Like a warm hug on a fragile day, there is a soothing familiarity about this café, which feels like it has been around forever despite being set up only a few years ago. Their USP is the all-day breakfast, which is almost good enough to merit over-indulging on a night out, just so you can appease your hangover with large helpings of crunchy bacon, maple syrup and soft, sweet French toast. A banana and chilli smoothie conceived by lead chef Amanda Cooper is a refreshing, invigorating libation, and packs a gentle spicy aftertaste that will wake you up without shocking the system. The menu is full of comfort food, including macaroni cheese, pancakes, eggs Benedict and several bacon-based breakfasts, as well as a counter full of cakes. Here you'll find all the finer details of breakfast and beyond delivered with resounding success.
