Great flavours- unusual and refreshing! Lots of herbs and veggies accompanying the dishes. Good place for lactose-intolerant person like myself. Desserts were yummy too. Portions were quite generous.

Very relax place for a weekend brunch. It serves all day breakfast. The vegetables are fresh. It's very popular and always full house.

I ordered the sweet potato and pumpkin hash and it was not nice. Generally the menu is very expensive and I did not think that the price was justified. Don't think I'll be returning.

Unique interior design with character. Staff were friendly and service was good. Yam Rosti was almost perfect! Would visit again to try other dishes in future.

Atmosphere was good but slightly squeezy. Food was decent but a little too pricy, we used the entertainer app so that got us a better deal.
