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.

My cousin is a regular here, so my family and I had to try this for ourselves. Breakfast was great and so were their cakes. There is a constant stream of customers, some to dine in, some to takeaway, many do both. On weekends, pre-Covid,...it will be crowded and you may have to park on the opposite side of the road. This morning, we arrived at 9.30 and it was easy to get a slot on site but their parking lot was choc-a-bloc by the time we left.More

Have visited this Cafe a couple of times. Food is good however even when the Cafe is not so busy, the wait staff (especially the senior one) aren't so welcoming. I read few other reviews on Google after my recent visit and found that such...service seems to be their custom. They certainly need some customer service training with emphasis on multicultural clientele.More

Just paid $25.50 for three medium sized iced mochas! Was a bit unexpected as I could have bought a family sized meal for that price:/

Four friends enjoyed brunch on a busy Sunday. Good choice of menu items. Well cooked and tasty food. No granola options . Potato rosti was a little soggy. Coffee and tea were excellent. Overall a good option for a tasty meal that was well presented...and served by friendly staff. Price was reasonable. Full lunch menu is interesting and the cake selection is excellent.More

Great food, friendly staff, good service. Nice place to sit to enjoy a meal with family, friends or to even chill out with oneself enjoying a coffee and cake.

Dropped in on Sunday for lunch. Had the steak sandwich and chicken burger. Food comes out quickly and is hot and tasty, generous servings. Staff are friendly and attentive. Will definitely be back.

Met with friends for a morning coffee & catch up. The cakes were great & the service excellent but the morning was spoiled by the uncomfortable seating & the fact that the general noise made it impossible to talk. Will not be returning.

Disappointed in the choices of the new lunch menu. All my favourite dishes are gone, no bruschetta, only one risaotto. Less choice available and kids only have 3 options...not great ones either.
