Visited here on a Saturday night, it was only around 5.30pm so not busy as all. The young waitress did not acknowledge us, we had to hold our hand up to get her to come to table, as she was cleaning tables, surely you do this when no customers to serve. Ordered our meals, did not even ask us we... More

Chicken souvlaki was delicious, 2 tasty chicken skewers served with a fresh tasty salad, rice & pita. Also very... More

I must admit I am a little bit of a cafe snob and bias as I have worked in cafes for years, but I believe customer service and hospitality is super important. I clearly told the waitress what I wanted and repeated my order to double check she got it right and she said "yes yes got it" yet when... More

We dropped in for breakfast here on the Christmas long weekend and I think the staff struggled with demand. My friend ordered the smashed avocado with poached eggs which came out presented very nicely with eggs poached just right, and I ordered the full breakfast with poached eggs. Unfortunately my eggs where hard boiled along with a very over cooked... More

Went there a few times and the food and coffee was great. I would easily go again! There's heaps of baked goods there which was hard to resist. The protein breakfast was average though. Could had been great if they didn't use can baked beans and had better cuts of meat.

We were each going to order something different until I spotted the waitress bringing out a 'Big Breakfast' to another customer and we quickly changed our order to that. It was HUGE - the biggest plate of... More

Loved this place. Great breakfasts, beautifully presented and quality ingredients. Fantastic customer service, nothing too much trouble. Nice place to drink tea/coffee and watch the world go by. You won't be disappointed.
