An average score for an average experience. When I eat breakfast out, I do so for many reasons. 1. The food is fresh and cooked exactly how I want it. 2. Variety 3. Service with a smile that makes me happy for the rest of the day. The menu lacks any real options, what they do have are a few... More

Have been here in the past, and enjoyed the experience. There was three of us and we decided to drop in to Leura for lunch. It was very busy as there seemed to be a number of tourist groups.

While it looks a bit more like a cafe than a restaurant on the inside, the food they serve up is worthy of any restaurant, both in terms of taste and presentation. We had the garlic bread to start (4 pieces, yummy pide bread) and the Lamb Kofta and the Zucchini Fritters for mains. Both were delicious and attractively laid... More

Had the Shakashuka (poached eggs in a tomato - like "stew" with awesome chilli flavours, haloumi and chorizo). Wife had chicken tajine which she said wasn't as nice as she hoped. My meal was what tipped me toward four stars, otherwise it would have rated a 3.

We had breakfast on the 18/2. Partner had the bacon,chorizo,egg burger and he loved the meal. I had the Avocado toast with fetta bean sprouts and this was average. Service was good, This place needs a clean, toilets were dirty - cobwebs around the restaurant - hate to see what the kitchen looked like.

Nice, familiar cafe fare with an interesting array of middle eastern influence. Toast with avocado, Persian feta and macadamia dukkah. Fresh juice served tall. Was served promptly, comfortable space, good staff. Win!
