Great retro atmosphere and good coffee and food. We love the double egg and bacon roll deal with large coffee for only $11. Friendly service is the real bonus.

Bit pricey but well worth it. You don't leave this shop hungry. Been back a few times. Staff polite and meals are large. Recommend the snitzel roll and the burgers. Lamb burger is probably the only thing letting them down. Even when they're flat out...More
