Adorable café situated in a bookstore which really helps the cute feel of the place. Service was fast considering how busy they were. Breakfast items of my friends looked delicious, and my freshly made muffin was heavenly. Would 100% go back. See less

Had a nice meal though it was wrong order, the staff was very nice and offer replacement right away, which I declined because I just simply happy with anything since this was my first visit. Nice ambience and great books. I spent 2 hours there with my laptop just until I see the sign at the very end says “no laptop allowed on this table”. I feel soooo bad, anyway thanks for nice service though! See less

Large selection of used books, though many shelves are simply inaccessible because of the way the cafe tables are laid out. People are settled in, trying to work or read, and you're hovering over them trying to see what books are on the shelf; honestly it's just uncomfortable. The coffee and food is decent, and I've found the staff to be mostly friendly. See less

Went here for breakfast - coffee was good and food was really tasty! Had the French toast, and it was delicious! However the portion size was quite small for the cost of it which was disappointing, only had one slice of bread rather than two slices - which is the usual amount at most other cafes. Also, lots of books to look at! Which is nice to have a peruse through after your foods. See less

Lovely little cafe with an interesting menu and good selection of drinks. The salsa verde eggs are really lovely; eggs poached to perfection. The Smokey house baked beans were tasty and the herb salad on top really complimented them. See less

Decent little cafe, they make their own almond milk which is awesome. The baked beans are very good, they taste rich and flavourful but still fresh, and the rest of the menu is nicely varied with plenty to choose from. The only downside I can say is that they seem to have a little bit of a habit of over-poaching their eggs See less

My experience there was amazing! The staff was so lovely we felt really welcoming and happy, the variety of books is just amazing, the perfect place to relax and have a coffee while reading, or studying. I tried this sandwich and it was really tasty 😋 so I had everything in just one place 🥰 See less

I lovely, homey café, featuring a plethora of lunch and breakfast delights (with vegetarian options and 3-4 vegan options) alongside thousands of used books! The staff are really friendly and welcoming. The macho latte is excellent, however I wasn’t a huge fan of their espresso and flat whites. The espresso is a bit too bitter and dark roast for my taste. I still think it’s a lovely café. I would actually recommend it for people in the area looking to sit, catch up with friends, read a book, and enjoy a nice healthy lunch. I’ll be back again for sure!

Really great place to have brunch. The food was wonderful, potion size was just right. The ambience of the place was so relaxing and peaceful. Being surrounded by books galore was a unique experience. The staff were friendly and accommodating. There are three levels, each with their own unique characteristics. The top level was peaceful. The basement level was cool and decorated with furniture from the bygone era. Perfect for any occasion See less
