Have eaten here for lunch dinner and morning coffee. Generally consistent good usual cafe style dishes. A plus is being able to have a glass of wine too.

The food is good, staff don't always look so happy. The food did take quiet some time coming out. For a few bottle beers and glass of wine they took ages. Will go back, but hope to get quicker service next time.

We had a quick lunch here with a group of work colleagues. The staff were very friendly and accommodating to a large group. My meal of beer battered flat heads tails and salad was good. Recommend for a quick bite to eat.

I'm never disappointed. I go there daily and staff are up beat and helpful. Although options are opening up for coffee shops in Pennant Hills, I'm sticking with my vote
