Myself and my other half probably eat here at least once every other weekend if not more. You can’t beat the quality of the food (definately reccomend the eggs royale, American style thick pancakes and pecan tart). The owner and the staff are always very friendly. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food. Definately give it a try if you’re passing as you won’t be disappointed.

The deli is small, yes, but five of us were accommodated perfectly well, and the rest of the tables and stools filled up around us. Despite it being this busy the staff were perfectly courteous, friendly and efficient in serving very nice breakfasts and brunch plates of different types including gluten free options for one of our party. I opted for the ploughmans, which was incredibly good value with a home made scotch egg, three cheeses, homemade ham hock terrine plus chutneys and a mound of well dressed and very fresh, interesting salad.

I heartily recommend this deli to everyone, and should you be unlucky enough not to get a table right away, be assured it is worth the wait!
