This cafe has proved time and time again that is the best little breakfast spot in Glenelg. The setting is rather boutique and cozy whilst remaining close to the main stretch of jetty road.

Good service and solid food. Nothing exceptional food-wise, but basics done well. Nothing to complain about. Good place to catch up with a few friends, although it's pretty small so it probably suits no more than a group of four. They allow split bills and accept credit cards.

Was recommended this quirky cafe by a friend, it did not disappoint it was the best breakfast we have had for a long time from the Hells eggs to the coffees to the fresh juices , everything was fantastic and had bags full of flavour. Topped off by outstanding customer service.
