Formerly known as Stokers Specialty Coffee (they still make a magnificent blend sourced from Five Senses beans) these guys do uber-interesting lunch items punctuated by their creative use of sweet and savoury pancakes, hamburgers, killer hot dogs filled with a juicy frankfurt and chorizo slices with a parmesan crisp on the side for texture. The pancake chips are something very left-field but awfully addictive and you’ll find yourself devouring the whole plate by yourself if you are not careful. Check the specials board for revolving and inventive dishes, enlightening pots of tea and when it’s on the menu, the homemade caramel and crushed pecan pancake will change you for the better.
