Warm friendly staff, beautiful north-easterly aspect, and all-day sun, light-filled and pleasant. Busy at the weekend - can be a rush. The staff are world-class in attentiveness as far as cafes go - our waitress had near-ESP abilities to know when we needed anything. Our corn fritters and feta avocado rye toast were excellent, the former fluffy and ungreasy and the latter richly tasty. And yet. The coffee is truly poor. Flat whites come in two sizes: too large, and even larger. It turned out they could do one in a tulip cup, but by that point I should have known what would come next. Bitter, burnt and hiding miserably under 2 cm of pure white foam. Go for the food and the atmosphere, but avoid the coffee.
