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.

Was on break from work and wanted to find a good spot for coffee, safe to say they've found a new regular customer.

Gave these guys a try for lunch today - enjoyed a yummy Caesar salad while my husband had the chicken burger & we definitely weren’t disappointed.. enjoyable dining experience with tasty food & coffee. Extremely good value and the customer service was spot on.

As per my title... hesitant to leave this review, purely because if more people discover how AMAZING this place is, I might risk not getting a table anymore! There is the most lovely man who greets you, seats you, serves you and makes the coffee......and he does all of this with a smile and seamless like a duck on water!! They are so professional re COVID Safety and take it seriously ensuring the environment is comfortable for diners. During my most recent visit, my partner ordered the seafood chowder - wow! I had food envy even though my nachos were delicious. We have fond memories of San Fransisco chowder and your chef has come very close to the best of the best! I’m pretty fussy with my coffee... the coffee here is delicious and the milk is so silky and smooth! I never have two coffees a day but I always find myself ordering a second here! As you can tell from this review, I just LOVE this place! It is so refreshing to go back to a restaurant and have just the same wonderful experience as the last visit. Thankyou! Thankyou! Thankyou! You have got it right on so many levels!!!More

If you are in the area or passing through, stop for breakfast. Good table service and coffee but great scrambled eggs on toast. When I am on the peninsula it is my go to place for breakfast.

Though rather expensive, this place will probably be my new favourite cafe to go for breakfast! The scrambled eggs on toast were just delicious, and exactly as the menu says - creamy! With cheese, spring onion and herbs, one a large slice of wholemeal toast....I didn’t think there would be enough toast with the large quantity of egg, but surprisingly there was. The iced coffee was also great!More

Attended here today for breakfast with my friend. I had the smashed avo with a few added extras, it was really yummy. Quite expensive I thought for what was on the plate but that is just life these days. The food was delicious and the...hot drink was also nice. Just didn't think there was enough food or maybe I was super hungry. The chef also came and checked on us with a happy positive attitude which was very refreshing.More
