This is the 3rd time we have been to this restaurant and have always found the food and service very good, We are usually there during the day and not at busy times but cannot fault it. When next in Sydney we will be back.

Came for a quick breakfast catch up with a friend. Offers a good selection for coffee in a relaxed atmosphere. Seems like a favorite for local and tourists with friendly staff. Eat-in or take away its an enjoyable and delicious meal. Coffee-wise not the best I have had but the food more than make up for that

Had breakfast there and it took forever to get service and then clean the table. My partner and i both ordered the same food 2 x poached eggs and avocado. When the bill came they had charged us $177 for each meal. Making them the most expensive meals on their menu! When we pointed out that 3 poached eggs on... More

We walked into the venue and were ignored. We walked out and then back in again and we walked around, stood at both openings and we were still ignored. There were four of us, hard to miss. Yet the waitress looked at us then looked away. Is there a secret sign we were supposed to use?

A bit of a unique twist on all the menu. I've tried a few things and their all delicious: toastie of pulled pork, Mince on toast, chorizo omelette, full breakfast etc. Wine is a good selection and waitress recommends a few options too if you need. Good spot for us locals. Sit outside in the sunshine. Nice to bring the... More

Nicely hidden away from the crowds and noisy streets in this area. The food was light, healthy and creative. Fennel Dukkah was fresh, aromatic and a perfect start to our dinner. Followed by great steamed dumplings. Kangaroo tagine was an interesting and very well executed fusion dish. The dark chocolate dessert was slightly too sweet. Really impressed by the waiter,...

Delightful service and food. Hummus for starter was refreshing for taste. The beef stew was tender and flavoursome. Wine list was $45 and up which was our only caution for a relaxed and enjoyable ambience and dinner.

Enjoyed a delicious brunch under the cover of Wisteria vines with dappled sunlight! Busy place we had no booking but had a table of 4 straight away! Delicious Spanish influenced breakfast menu with lots of options - making a final choice was the hardest part. Excellent coffee first up with all food orders not disappointing. The paella with baked eggs... More

We came here for breakfast as it was the closest option and looked very welcoming, so glad we did !! The menu has a distinct Spanish influence and we had some serious food envy as other peoples meals were being brought out - eventually though we both settled on the Eggs Benedict with chorizo because Eggs Benedict is our indicator...
