Although the other customers made us feel uncomfortable and unwanted the staff was friendly and attentive. The food was amazing and the decor was cute, cozy and retro with a modern flair. Would definitely recommend you come here for brunch.

They're very accommodating and whilst it may say one thing on the menu, the chefs were more than happy to modify the dish to my liking. I'm not a mushroom fan either!!
