Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Arrived at 9am on a Saturday morning during the New Year break and the place was very busy but we only waited 10 mins for a table. Service was very quick considering the number of patrons, very impressed. Food was amazing. Best breakfast we've had...in a long time. Great choices on the menu and some different choices , value for money, great serving size, great wait times. We will most certainly be back .More

I can see why this place was voted best breakfast. YUM! Hubby said it was the best breaky he’d had. The bagel board filling is huge, big enough to share, just order extra bagels. An absolute must to dine at. Really generous servings and at...a great price.More

Honestly can’t see what the fuss is about. Spent the past 6 days trying different cafes and this, after reading so many reviews, really disappointed. Coffee and service was excellent but that’s where it finished. The food was well below average and being busy nobody...cared, or took an interest in what we were addressing. It was really expensive as well compared to other places.More
