A friend of mine and I come here for the coffee as it's really good and since this is our meeting spot in the afternoon, we've usually had lunch by the time we meet and I'd never ordered a meal here until our last catch-up. I'd been running errands all day and was starving by the time I got there, so I finally decided to have a bite. Well, their food is as good as their coffee. There are quite a few options to choose from but I decided to go for a salad. It was deliciousness and nutrition in a generous amount - had me full instantly. I'll definitely have some of their other menu options next time I come around. The atmosphere is very welcoming and friendly, staff are great with clients and it's a great place for all day breakfast and a decent espresso.
I hadn't had the chance to eat from the lunch menu yet cause when I was there, it was only for a coffee and small bite. But whilst eating my coffee (which was really nice), I couldn't help but notice all the lunch items being brought out for other customers - it all looked so good. Especially the salads even though I'm normally not a fan of salads. But in regards to the coffee that I had, that alone is more than enough reason to return.
