A relaxed restaurant and wine bar on the North-East corner of the Crystal Palace triangle. The interior has a gastropub vibe, with smart wooden furniture, bare floorboards and industrial-style lightbulbs, and it can get quite noisy as a result.
Kat and a friend visited for brunch on a Sunday in February 2017. We'd booked a table online, and at 12pm it was fairly busy with locals and young families. We chose from the breakfast menu (served until 12.30 at weekends) — a full English (£9.50) came with a pot of tea included. Salmon, avocado and poached egg with rocket salad (£7.50) was a generous portion and the salmon wasn't overdone. Service was friendly and efficient; a jug of tap water with a few slices of cucumber was brought to our table straight away and topped up throughout the meal. With service and an extra cup of tea each, the bill came to £15/head.
Kat's verdict: the food was good — I'd probably come back and try the burger menu.
