2 scrambled eggs and a scone of your choice, with a very bit of salad and a fruit garnish (and no coffee) will set you back 15 bucks. Not worth it by a long shot. I had the smaller breakfast which consisted of scrambled eggs...More

The scones were really good with some interesting flavours (I had lemon and poppyseed with strawberry jam!) The atmosphere was good too, trendy and casual cafe vibe.

Yes. I buy scones to go whenever I can. The caveat is to get there early because they can run out of scones by the end of lunch. They even offer to see frozen scones that you can bake at home.
