Great coffee and fresh food. Was told my locals it's the best place for coffee and it didn't disappoint. It's inside the Woolworths mall. Difficult to find though, the cafe sign is in initials JDG cafe opposite Wendy's icecream

In the precinct at alice between scheduled sightseeing visits, we found this gem of a place. After viewing the food on selection, I chose a slice of quiche with salad which was enjoyable whilst my wife chose a savoury deep square omelette with salad. A complimentary cake was produced with our drinks.

Great place to grab a really good coffee, though the service can be slow, maybe because it is quite popular. Food tends to be a bit 'over priced' compared to similar places in the CBD. The fact that it is in a 'food court' can make it extremely noisy and difficult to have a conversation.

Nice stop for a coffee. Located within the Yeperenye shopping centre, so it's a nice and cool place to stop in after a movie at the cinema.

Excellent Laksa, fast service and pleasant staff. Obviously very popular with the locals. Good selection of meals ready to go, or a short wait for a cooked meal off menu.

My work colleagues & I go here nearly every day, sometimes twice a day. Great service for take-away coffee. Very quick considering the number of orders. Good seating inside as well.

This morning I have ordered chicken and cheese toast sandwitch. It was very dry not enough cheese and there is no butter. I have enjoyed coffee very well. All the food on display looks like supermarket product. I wonder how come this cafe become rank two in trip advisor.
