We only had the take-out soup (tomato soup and curry lentil soup). The sourdough bread was great. We loved the soups but they were small for the price. Be careful, they stay very hot for a long time! I'd skip Flavors on the Water and...More

I enjoyed a late lunch here, a crispy haddock (I think) wrap and Caesar salad. Everything was tasty and the mango chutney in the wrap was delightfully different! Service was excellent and I was very well cared for as I sat on the patio. I...More

We didn't see a kids menu, we were all adults and I didn't see any children there. You could always call the location and they would tell you. They have 3 locations in the Sydney area. I hope this helps you.
