Stopped here for breakfast on my way to North Shore Hospital. Breakfast stack was delicious and reasonably priced. Staff were friendly and there was plenty of room indoors and out to pause for a bite to eat.

Staff uninterested. I am a considerate smoker and am aware of who's around me when I light up. Sorry you can't smoke here, even outside with no other person around. Better options in the area.

After 3 months I finally went back to give them another go.What a disaster. Surly unhelpful girl on the till And who else charges $5.20 for a flat white when a late is $5.00 I would love someone to explain the logic there. I won't be back.

Stopped in for a coffee as I had 25 mins to kill between appointments, after waiting 15 minutes for my trim flat flat white, I went to the counter and asked for it to go...lots of bickering by the numerous staff as to whose fault it was. So I said forget it just give me my money back. Terrible service... More

What more could you want, excellent service and the food was great as well. The service was fast, coffee took no time at all to get to us from time of order, they were busy being just prior to 10am on a Monday morning but they were so organised there was no waiting around. I had eggs on toast and... More

I have regularly visited this cafe over the past 4 months and am still living in hope that one day I will be blown away with the standard of coffee; but I am still waiting. The coffee is either insipid, over extracted or just plain awful. It is overpriced as is the food which is boring and lacking in choice... More

This is my go-to networking place for business meetings on the Shore. Great parking, central location, great host (thanks Jason), good food and drinks, sunny aspect, and good-sized a function room if you have a big crowd. You don't expect gourmet food in these places, and nor do you always expect outstanding service, but this is as good as anywhere... More
