I could have easily missed the place as the entrance is only a single door. I had no idea what to expect when I made my way up the narrow stairs to what seemed like the back door of the premises. I was a little unsure at first, as the steel kegs seem to imply that I shouldn't be there, however as there was no other entrance I ventured forward, and indeed once through the door I was in a very pleasant little cafe/bar venue.
The service is slow but the staff are very friendly when they get to you. The small table for two that we sat at wobbled quite a lot which was very annoying. Having said that, this is a little oasis in above the hustle and bustle of the busy lane below. You almost have to slow down because no-one is moving very fast. You can sit and chat sip coffee or something stronger if you fancy. The menu is tasty and seems to cater for all tastes.
It would appear that Hell's Kitchen morphs from cafe to bar to restaurant depending on what is required.
