The food is excellent, however, what topped in our visit was the friendly warm hospitality we received from the staff. They are indeed great to make a couple with 2 very young kid (making noises often) feel welcome

There are many nice brekkie places in Surry Hills/Darlinghurst but this is definitely one of the top ones. Never disappoints. I have stopped by there on a regular basis ever since I came to Sydney more than 10 years ago. Their (all-day) menu is really...interesting and we have pretty much sampled everything. Try the Truffle eggs, or the Zucchini fritters, or the Croque Madame, or the Vegetarian roll for a start. The coffee is also excellent and the waiters are attentive and pleasant. A really nice and relaxed atmosphere. You can sit inside or outside which we definitely prefer especially on a crisp Sunday morning when the sun comes up. Lovely way to start the day.More

The food is exquisite and the staff are amazingly friendly. Beautiful sun beams into the cafe which has a really relaxed and welcoming vibe. The Lumi Avocado, Zucchini Fritters and Warm Oats were our choice of dishes for breakfast this morning. Very filling and flavoursome...meals, props to the chef. Great coffee and a delicious banana bliss smoothie too. Thanks to the team, we will certainly be coming here again!More

If you haven’t eaten here you haven’t tasted food, every option in the menu is a culinary experience at its best. The hummus avo egg and zaatar, the pasta with prawns and the ricotta hot cakes are some of the must eat dishes. And of...course the staff always so welcoming and a fun way to start the weekend. Efi is such a great host always smiling and welcoming,More
