It’s a retro flashback at this diner-style eatery where one wall is covered in album covers – David Bowie, George Michael, Debbie Harry and… is that Bros? There are genuinely vintage seats to sit on and the food is another nod to the way things were. Excellent ricotta hotcakes come with lemon ice-cream in a happy play of hot and cold, sweet and sour. The burgers are great; a dense meat pattie served with a decent amount of mustard, pickles and tomato sauce, deep-fried onion rings on the side. There are ice-cream-laden milkshakes, too, in all the important flavours.
