Venue Testimonials

I had an 18 person birthday brunch here, and I cannot express how effortless the team made it! They accommodated such a big group, they were clear with communication, on the day they were very busy but still make me and my guests feel so attended to and appreciated.

Zoe A

The place is excellent for a cosy reception and its vintage architecture gives your function some character. The food selection and wine for a wedding overpassed my expectations. The staff I found them to be professional, friendly and happy.

Rosa R

The architecture is amazing, the scale-like facade transitions into the ceiling of the cafe. The atmosphere is pleasant and has a great vibe.
