Cocktail Bar
$$$
“This 'hidden' cocktail bar may take some finding but it's definitely worth the effort (look for the flag and door handle in the shape of an antique musket). They do interesting cocktails presented amazingly but all the classics too. It gets pretty busy after 9pm at weekends so have a couple of cocktails before dinner to avoid the crush. ”

Café
$$
“Our most frequented coffee shop - the coffee is great, the menu interesting and available all day and they have a good range of vegetarian and vegan options. They open relatively early (7.00AM), the staff is fantastic and they don't play the music too loud. Probably why it has become Luke's second office.”
