Breakfast Spot
$$
“Great spot for breakfast. A true locals spot. Walking to this spot will take you through a bit of a rough neighbourhood but we swear it makes the avocado toast and coffee taste better:) Off the beaten path and one of our go to places. Freshly baked bread makes this diner smell amazing and helps you “recover” after a night in the city. Share the avocado toast and get a coffee and watch the city life go by. Free wifi”
