You could linger all day in this sophisticated eatery on the corner of the Circus. There's always a good crowd for morning coffee, elevenses (brunch), afternoon tea, and cocktails, not to mention lunch and dinner, all of which are dispensed with efficient cordiality. If you can take your attention off the crumpets with Marmite, the spinach and nutmeg soup, or the breast of duck served on sweet potatoes with sloe gin sauce, you can discuss the colorful modern art on the walls. Desserts include cardamom rice pudding with honey and cumin-glazed figs. Ingredients are locally sourced and wines come from small growers.
