This is a great place to come and work during the week. The coffee is good, and the all-day brunch menu reasonably priced. They take a lot of trouble to make ordinary dishes special, even making their own baked beans to serve with the enormous Full English – a meal that will keep some people going all day and others all week. At weekends, expect the full-on Upper Street crush.
