Immediately greeted by friendly staff. We arrived at 10.30am on a Sunday, and although very busy we were served very quickly. Brunch menu was excellent, that kept all the family happy. Very good coffee using di Manfredi beans. Modern menu with classic favourites, healthy options with flavoursome twists. The serves were large and well presented. Toilets older style but well...

This place is great and lives up to the cheeky name. My colleague and I were in town for business and had breakfast there twice and a drink in the evening. Good coffee, lovely fresh food and even when it was busy the quality was consistent with the day before. The service was efficient and friendly even when they were... More

They have an appetizer of fried crocodile that was so tender and tasty!!! Our waiter was very nice and attentive! The menu had an excellent selection making it very difficult to decide. In fact, they are so good I came back the following morning to be impressed again with their breakfast!

Went for breakfast around 9:30 and it was very busy. The meal was really nice and a large serving. Service was good. We couldn't eat it all. Went back in the afternoon for a drink and it was nowhere near as busy at lunch time.

Walked in expecting regular bacon and eggs, but was pleasantly surprised with one of the best brunch meals I've ever had! Super tasty and fresh, great friendly service as well. We would be regulars if we lived in Darwin!

Four of us walked from our hotel on Cavanaugh Street to "ducks nuts" on Mitchell for their 4:00-6:00 pm HAPPY HOUR SPECIALS for drinks and food.
