Easy access to the train station and Mayflower Theatre. Good choice of food - wraps, baguettes, baked pots, omelettes as well as starters and mains. Friendly staff. Small so booking recommended if you want to be sure you'll get a table. We were there at lunchtime and it was full, a bit noisy due to low ceilings. Well worth a visit. Take away available too.

This is a great place to meet and eat/ drink with friends or colleagues. The staff are friendly and service is prompt. The food was cooked to order and really tasty. Highly recommend the smoked salmon with scrambled eggs. The portion size is good too!

We had a fantastic Sunday breakfast on a visit to Southampton. Perfect eggs benedict - the best I can remember having. Plus an attentive and friendly service. I'd have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant :-)

Great venue close to the station, we had a meeting brunch with clients. The food went down very well, good selection on the menu. I will be using CXO again next time we visit the Mayflower theater for pre show food and drink.

As always, friendly and efficient service. There is a great choice of freshly prepared food with healthy eating options too. A super little place where you can just have a coffee, or a full meal.

Great little gem of a restaurant set just a few minutes walk from Southampton central railway station. Ideal for lunch time or evening meals and great for pre-show meals for the Mayflower theatre.

A lovely little independent bistro with friendly staff and delicious home made food. Great before the theatre, although no special pre theatre meal deal. Day time they have wraps, breakfasts, omelettes etc.

Excellent service. Brilliant food which was tasty and beautifully executed on the plate. My husband especially loved this raw beef Thai salad. Lovely atmosphere, thank you.
