The constant queue that starts before opening time at weekends makes it easier to find than it would be otherwise. The décor – books, a birdcage, a portrait of Queen Elizabeth I – is as eclectic as the menu. Quesadillas, frittatas or baked eggs with south Indian red lentils are possible choices, but what’s served depends on the mood of the chef/owner.
There’s a range of freshly-baked cookies and muffins, and the pancakes with chopped banana and blueberries are pure heaven on a plate. Just try to block out the view of the brunch-hungry, waiting on the bench outside. It’s the kind of cutesy, down-at-home place that lures in kids and their movie star parents who are in town filming. And they wait in line like everyone else.
