All day breakfast fare ranges from a raspberry chia bowl with mixed berries. mango puree, honey and coconut milk, to Stacks On! (avocado, bacon,  poached eggs and haloumi on toasted Turkish bread), and Breakfast Gnocchi - house made gnocchi with slow-cooked braised beef, root vegetables, garlic and herbs in a hearty Napoli sauce; while sweet tooths will want to tuck into caramelised waffles served with spiced macerated mixed berries and double cream.
