    The menu is rather limited but the service and atmosphere is superb. The waiter noticed that my friend did not finish his drink and offered to concoct a sweeter version. Attentive and hospitable.

    This is a nice place if you want to chill - they have wifi and you can order a drink or food if you want. But, the music choice was kind of repetitive and it seemed a little too fancy for my taste.

    Cozy place for that much-needed after-work drinks. A mix of finger food and main dishes. Price is reasonable.

    Nice, chill place for afternoon tea or a study session. The portobello fries are tasty.

    Comfy seating. Not crowded on a Sunday afternoon. Espresso was not great, but some Trappist beers available and a nice looking menu, but not much of a kitchen in back so I doubt much is cooked fresh.

    Very nice place but don't bother coming to work here- even free sockets can't be used for charging, bad!!
