Terrible attitudes of the staff make the average coffee the worst i have tasted yet. Thinking that because you are the only cafe in the complex that you can treat customers with a lack of respect just means you won't last long. I would prefer to drive get an average coffee with less attitude.

Terrible service. Current manager consistency has temper tantrums with both staff and customers. Food is often under-cooked and no effort is made to resurrect issue. When the staff members aren't rude or ignoring customers completely then they are all outside smoking which means there is often a smell of smoke inside. As part of a local business we will only...

The place I start my day with a coffee every morning, great coffee and friendly staff to get your day heading in the right direction! If coffee isn't enough they do some of the best breakfasts around, my personal favorite's are the smashed avocado, omelette or the big breakfast all reasonably priced. They also have a lunch menu and do... More

Went here for a friends 21st birthday and found the venue to be really great. The food was really delicious and of great variation, and importantly, the waitstaff are just so friendly and talkative. Nice and big, with a good outdoor area, would definetly recommend.

Dropped in for coffee on the way to collect my car from the mechanic. Great coffee. I noticed that the next night they had an 80's band playing, so booked a table for four. Didn't discover happy hour til we arrived! Great parma at a great price. We all LOVED the band and wondered why we had never been here... More
