We have stringent practices in place for hygiene and social distancing for Covid 19 and ask that you pay by card, we do not accept cash. Please respect the rules and remain at appropriate distances, in appropriate numbers as

specified on the signs.

You can order ahead on our App to avoid waiting for your order in the bistro area and we recommend using our ME&U ordering system on the tables for the quickest and most Covid safe way of ordering.


If you dine with us at a table we are required to take your contact details under the current Covid 19 health order so please make sure you sign in. Please note tables in the undercover space and inside are provided for those enjoying our eat-in menu only. Fresh white professionally laundered tablecloths are provided for each guest for your safety and we have strict Covid 19 hygiene policies in place. Some things because of all of the regulations will take longer than usual – like seating you at a table after other guests have left - we thank you for your patience and understanding as we all do our best to make sure you are safe. Covid can also occasionally affect our staff numbers without notice so please be kind to the ones that are there, they are doing their best.

Orders can be made at the table on our Me&U system which is super easy to use,  or at the counter for safety


Please note we do not take cash, again for safety both from Covid but also reducing security risk. ​

We look forward to sharing a smile and our food and coffee with you soon
