All roads should lead here (and re-zone the gutter)
The Low Road adds a secret ingredient to everything served: charisma. The proprietors/ objects of lust Naomi Corbett and Ben Corbett have infused every inch of the premises with their laidback sardonic humour from the decorative kitsch to the menu descriptions (it's all an elevated form of humorous social critique). Examples: the socially conscious blackboard which has been the subject of much media attention, the clever food descriptions, the repartee between the staff who give the place a true sense of being in the middle of a family kitchen (if your family is rockstars and runaways).

This food is the apex of stuffing your face.

But all this is just noise: the food, OMG the food. We went for breakfast which is my least favourite meal; eggs don't excite me. What these people can do with a breakfast salad made me ignore my child falling off a stool so I could fist baby spinach and dill, smoked yoghurt and haloumi into my mouth. Baby Daddy had spicy baked beans and chorizo which he defended with his forearm and then stabbed at my fork with his fork in a breakfast battle scene. If you don't like to share there will be blood.
The specials are special
The specials are as special as the special people concocting them.

Another Object of Lust

Breakfast is just the start of the gastronomic seduction delivered by the Corbetts, lunch and dinner will keep you chasing the next flavour like a Michelin Star junkie. The bar is also a temptation to keep the day flowing but resist the urge to start flirting with the owners: there is literally a queue for their affections which are directed firmly at each other. But don't be put off; you can buy love in the form of excellent coffee, mind-blowing food and a drinks menu to educate any palate.

You will get honesty and honestly the best food and coffee. Do it.

Stop making me look uncool by telling you how much I love the place and turn up yourself. If you disagree you are wrong but we can work it out over a cider, some crazy good tapas and tumbling blocks (aka non-licensed Jenga). Follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
