Kat and Sarah visited for brunch on Christmas Eve 2019 (a Tuesday). It was pretty busy at 11.30am, but there were a couple of tables free. Kat went for the Masala breakfast: vegan samosa (enormous, with a chapati as the 'pastry'), dal (quite spicy), fried tomato, mushrooms, masala scrambled egg, pickles & coriander. It was £11 and all the bits were delicious. A latte was £2.70. Sarah had the veggie breakfast (halloumi, fried egg, rocket, mushroom, tomato, beans, toast, £9) and found it 'very good'.
Child friendliness: several young families were present on our visit. There's a separate kids menu - you can have a toastie with a filling of just marmite!
Kat's verdict: Great brunch spot catering for many dietary requirements. I would definitely return (however I do live relatively nearby).
