Upon entering the cafe there was a musty/mouldy smell in the air. I think it was coming from the air conditioning. We had invited some of our close friends to enjoy some afternoon tea and left feeling disappointed. We ordered two of the the tasting plates at $24.00 each and some cakes and coffee. The tasting plate was uninspiring. Nobody... More

This restaurant has just not been the same since the current owners took over a couple of years ago, but it is so convenient. My last visit was well over a year ago and once again it was lunch with a friend. It was very quiet and the service was good. We both opted for breakfasts (available till 5pm). My... More

We went with our 7 and 10 year old. There was something for everyone on the menu. They were very accommodating to our diary needs. The food was delicious. I highly recommend.

I dropped in here on the way to a movie with my kids. I ordered a chai latte with almond milk. I presume they make their own chai as it was very weird tasting. It was almost spicy and like no other chai I've tasted. Can't say anything about other coffee or food but I'd avoid the chai's

Had an enjoyable half hour or so with a friend while waiting for a film at the Cameo next door. The coffee was good, the light refreshment food was also good. There were a number of people chatting and dining throughout the cafe space and there was importantly a good vibe.
