The Simple Cafes

June 29, 2016

Don’t hate us, but  there is only so many times I need edible flowers and micro herbs in my life. Amen to a menu you can understand! Sometimes we just need a chilled out breakfast with the simple things. No queues, no hipster baristas, no judging when you’ve rolled out of bed with a massive hangover – just plain old simple!
