We found this Cafe after a trip to see the Linda McCartney photographic exhibition at the Ballarat Art Gallery. The staff were lovely, the food was delicious and we had a chilled time. Love an all day breakfast menu and the specials were all different.

Top food, top coffee and top service. Food tasted so fresh while the coffee was delicious. My family and I had breakfast here one morning and returned for the next 4 mornings for coffee. We were away on a long weekend from Melbourne.

Sorry I don't remember. But I do remember there was a few on the menu. Basically they had quite a mixed menu of food for all. Covered all the bases.
