Bad, rude service and food is very overpriced. Staff aren’t very helpful, the food was ok but not great for what they charge.

The meals here are awesome... unfortunately the table service was terrible. We got seated at a table where two strangers were already seated. They weren’t asked if they minded to have their meal interrupted, and we weren’t asked if we would like to join them....More

In arrival we were greeted and told we could choose were we sat. On seating ourselves water was promptly brought out and menus. Service was A1. Order came out fast and breakfast was beautiful. Can also recommend green juice as well.

There is a relaxed euro feel to the cafe with inside and outside tables. The staff were friendly and attentive. Visited on a week day lunch and had no issues with getting a table. The food was lovely - definitely try the calamari!

Breakfast here on a Sunday. Luckily arrived just after 10am so didn't have to wait for a table. By 11am they were queing out the door. Food was great. 4 of us each had something different and everything was fresh, tasty and looked so appetizing....More

We had lunch here today. The choice was difficult due to the delicious menu but we went for the club sandwich and crispy calamari. Both meals were delicious. They were a good size, the presentation was good and they were quick in getting the meals...More

We made an impromptu stop for coffee at Urban Pantry and stayed on for lunch. Food was, as always, delicious and well plated. The service, surprisingly, was very good. I hope the improved level of service remains.
