Parnell Village is atmospheric and well worth a visit. This cafe has an excellent menu serving very large portions of food. There is a good outdoor terrace and the staff are friendly and efficient. There is free wifi.

A nice place for a relatively cheap breakfast. Service was fast and efficient. Asked several times if everything was ok.

What a great find, in the middle of Parnell, parking nearby. Stumbled on this cafe, on a Sunday. Service was top notch, seated within seconds, complimentary jugs of water a few moments later (there was even a doggie-bowl full of water for the pets that accompany their owners) even though the staff were very busy; menu on the ready.

Service was great and food/drink turned up in prompt fashion. I had the special breakfast hash. Although it was a bit salty, I enjoyed it and it was very filling. I would go there again.
