Nice food and centrally located buit we didn't have a lot of time so the wait was a little inconvenient

Needed a quick feed, and we weren't disappointed. Nice ambience for lunch, both inside and out. We chose the covered street-side tables, and watched the passing parade whilst still able to see the Olympics on the big screen inside. She had: Southern Chicken Burger -...Fried Chicken, chipotle mayo, American cheese, lettuce and apple slaw. I took a bite, and immediately experienced buyer's remorse about my choice - it was a tasty burger indeed. She demolished it. ...I needn't have worried though. The 250gm rib fillet was well sourced and perfectly prepared. I was once again satisfied with my life choices. Only one "rocky" moment; my beer was somewhat warm on arrival. I would have settled for an icy cold glass to pour it into; but on mention it was immediately replaced with a perfectly chilled one. Great service, thank you. NB This appears to be now known as "The Goat Café and Restaurant".More

Had to queue to get table and menu card even though I pre booked. Why won’t you let people order when they came up to the counter instead of making people walk up twice when there is a table reserved already. Our friends arrived first...and waited a long time to get to the counter only to be told had to be seated then queue again. By this time we had arrived. So booking for 10 but by the time she had got to the counter it was past 10 so luckily they didn’t cancel our booking. No table service. Place was really noisy with background music playing. Can hardly talk to our friends. My eggs were supposed to be soft. Was overcooked but waited so long to get the big brekky couldn’t be bother to ask for a change. Won’t be going back anytime soon.More

Went here for lunch today after read reviews. A bit disappointed when we first arrived, as it looked so dark and dismal. However, we sat outside in the shade, and thoroughly enjoyed our two shared salads. Salt Squid and beetroot salads. Tasty and not heavy....Good choice. Excellent coffee afterwards. Pleased we went there for lunch.More

Kids enjoyed the pizza and the coffee was good, but the quality of the food generally was average. My daughter had a toasty that was on very average bread and I had an Asian salad where I had to pick out some of the lettuce...as it was old and the dressing overpowered the rest of the food. Also, we had to eat indoors as it was raining and a bit blowy outside, but the air conditioning inside was set too high and we had to go and get jumpers from the car in spite of it being summertime outside.More
