Pleasant, relaxed cafe with a nice outlook on a canal and the Olympic stadium. I had a Salmon and Cream Cheese Bagel and a Flat White and everything was great. I'm from New Zealand and the atmosphere (and music) really reminded me of cafes back home.

Coffee was good, not great, but definitely passable. I'll be back!more

Such a lovely place to spend a sunny Sunday. Beautiful location right by the water, in a quiet area that's great to bring a group to.

I will definitely be back.more

Inside its spacious and airy, and has that rustic relax feel. - and because...more
