The food, both in quality and presentation was very good. The service was also of suitable quality for a high throughput cafe/eatery, being attentive without being pushy. overall, a good experience. We would go back without hesitation
Great customer service! The staff were friendly. The food were really good too. The corn fritters were the best we've had! Would recommend this place
