Only place I have ever come across that serves coffee at a drinkable temperature. The staff are efficient and friendly. Brunch food is good. Would always recommend it to people.

I fell in love with this place the moment I entered. The colour scheme, design and staff was so inviting. Coffee is amazing and the avocado- feta toast I had was delicious aswell. A place to stay and read your book.

Just had a Cortado, was offered a complimentary glass of water poured from an old brown medicine bottle.... Didn't have time to sample the food, and at first glance wasn't tempted. Seems like any half decent coffee house in London, so no wow factor for...More
