An excellent café/brasserie-style operaration, offering carefully-sourced food - put together in modern everyday dishes - and offering good value for money.
The whole is to be found in a converted industrial building, and much of this feel has been retained. So expect formica-style tables, exposed ducting and bare brick walls. You can just pop in for a cup of their top-class coffee or eat as lightly or seriously as you wish.
On the food front, only a handful of dishes are offered at each stage - perhaps Butternut Squash & Chick Pea Broth or Scambled Egg or Slice of Cake for something lighter.
While more substantial dishes might include a Bruschetta, a Risotto, a daily fish (such as sea bass) and a meat dish (maybe lamb chops/kofta or steak).
