"Gourmet" food, in a really laid back atmosphere. There is no table service at this restaurant. You order at the counter and it is delivered to your table. Even get your own water from the tap (that provides sparkling or still). But the food is...More

Birchwood is a go to place for my friend and I. We try other breakfast places here and there but always end up back here. It’s consistently good and the piri piri sauce is to die for.

Busy place with eclectic dishes containing all fresh, local ingredients that taste amazing! Breads made on site (Bird Seed bread is AMAZING!), pastries, coffee drinks, salads, sandwiches, breakfast dishes. Some items like the savory waffle look really "different", but just try it and hopefully you...More

This was a fabulous restaurant, but we were there with relatives and had very small portions of so-so foods, with extremely small glasses of wine. Felt like we were not welcome. Was a pretty hefty price for one meal for sharing, a large salad and...More
