Our friends that live in Sidney took us here as this is their regular breakfast/brunch place. I had the smoked salmon eggs benedict and it was amazing. I don't usually get eggs benetict and this didn't disappoint. Everything else looked great, coffee was good. We go the "dark" though and it was a little strong even for me and I... More

Bought 3 burgers, takeaway with Fries. They looked/sounded great on the menu and for CA$14 you'd expect quality. It was downhill from there. The look didn't match the taste. They use cheap/fatty hamburger mince. There doesn't appear to be much in the way of seasoning. I don't add salt or want salt on my food but some sort of taste... More

Fantastic selection of everything from eggs to bennies and waffles, with Burgers and Sandwiches if you're more in a lunch mood. We sat outside on the streetwise tables and it was great fun with the kids.

Given all the great reviews about this place being the best breakfast in Sydney I was very disappointed, not just once but three times. I should have trusted my experience the first two times. You are "greeted at the front door with a sign that has a long message about their seating policy. I won't go into detail but it... More

My wife has been wanting to go to this little gem of a restaurant for a while… This morning we were one of the first in for breakfast on a Sunday morning. The omelette future was the best omelet I've ever had in my life. Get there early because after half an hour there's a lineup outside.

Lucked out and got a table at 11 am after a very brief wait. It's a very small, narrow venue and I was glad we got a window table up front where it wasn't so claustrophobic. Good service and very eclectic menu featuring interesting takes on eggs Benedict and omelettes. The food was good except for the accompanying potatoes. They... More

I've been here before and it was very good. On Saturday I was there with my Mother and it was poor. The eggs were over cooked for Mum and under cooked for me. The eggs I ordered were not the eggs I got on my plate but after waiting 20 min for a seat and 15 more mins for a... More

We came back to enjoy a tasty brunch just this last weekend. Pick a table outside and enjoyed the tasty meal & took in the sites / sounds of downtown. Staff were very friendly/ efficient, so it was well worth the experince!
