What a charming place to stumble across!  Whilst waiting for an appointment in the Apple store I needed to burn an hour in the morning and this was the perfect drop in place to trial.  The hospitality was warm and the environment perfectly relaxed with calm service.  Granted I only had two menu items on this visit however, there were some aspects that could have been a bit tighter food wise: the eggs with my eggs royale were only half runny (the remainder were hard) and I felt the hollondaise could have been more seasoned.  There was also a 20 minute wait for the pastry selection as supplies had obviously run low and it was needed to be baked freshly.  When the selection arrived it was evidently light and fresh (well prepared pastry) and the hot white chocolate was definitely a nice touch, therefore a mixed bag on the food.  However, the negatives are easily rectifiable and it was all very nice to have regardless.

All in all this is a lovely option to have for traditional dishes in an all day dining context in a very comortable environment; just a little more execution required.  However, I will definitely be popping in again when I can.
