We enjoyed the coffee, decor, friendly staff and atmosphere right up until the food eventually arrived.

We waited at least 30 mins in an almost empty cafe for 3 plates of very mediocre brunch. The sweet potatoes on multiple plates were still raw, the burger was tiny and the baked eggs didn't appear to be baked at all, just a soupy mix of eggs, beans and watery tomato. When we pointed out the raw sweet potatoes, the staff offered us some crispy potatoes which they implied were ready to be served however after another 15 minute wait the potatoes still hadn't arrived and we had lost our appetite.

We asked for some money off the bill instead and they only took some mushrooms and haloumi off the bill - still much more than it was worth.

The attitude of the staff changed after we pointed out the problems and we didn't get the feeling the feedback was welcome.

Definitely won't be back and sadly, live locally so will tell others not to go. We could have been happier customers if more had been done to make us feel like our custom was appreciated.

Good coffee and decor - but had a really poor brunch experience here and the staff became really unfriendly with us.

All the other breakfast and brunch places around Archway are packed on a Sunday and this place was completely empty, which speaks for itself.

Lovely food and staff, been there a few times for dinner, had a great time!

First class coffee, savouries & cake; lovely people & an all-round good-looking place with a garden if weather OK. Haven't managed to get to a jazz evening yet but will do.

Chilled and welcoming atmosphere to sit down and chat with a friend over some delicious food, or sip a cup of tea with cake over reading a book. The kitchen team will make their best effort to make a dish from the menu most suitable for you, very handy if you have allergies or special nutrition requirements. Live music on occasions creates a lively atmosphere for an evening out with your family/friends! Try this place out for yourself, can guaranty you will not walk out unsatisfied:)

Really friendly personal. Good and tasty breakfast. And sometimes really nice live jazz music. Best place in the area.

Great food, lovely place. Don't miss grilled portobello mushroom burger with skinny fries. The avocado with cheese, caramelised red onion and chili salsa was great!

Comfortable surroundings very chilled..with great food and service, every time.
