Good coffee, try the breakfast brioche! There are plenty of seats and there is a lawn area for little kids to run around. Lots of people here doing work on laptops, having a casual breakfast and just enjoying the fresh air. Staffa are friendly and there is a nice casual hipster feel here.
Not impressed. Clearly not welcoming to kids. Staff looked at us like we'd crawled out of cheese when we turned up with 3 well behaved toddlers on a Sunday morning for breakfast. Quickly informed 'they don't have baby chairs'. Then tried to order an extra egg with one of their overpriced dishes. Only to be told 'sorry we can't do that'. Menu looks good and I've heard coffee is ok, but this local won't be back.
With a name like this I simply had to try them. Amazing coffee menu! I had no idea there was such a range if techniques for brewing etc. luckily I was with some very experienced coffee connoisseurs who chose for me. Only downside was that it was a little tight and not very pram / stroller friendly. But that is prob not their regular clientele so understandable.
