Thoroughly enjoyed our lunchtime visit to Daark on Monday 5 Nov 18. It was very hot, the staff brought out ice and plenty of water. Excellent food, great value for money and excellent service. Will definitely return and definitely recommend this lovely cafe.

The menu sounded interesting but the ingredients didn't work to advantage. Zucchini fritters were quite doughy without a lot of zucchini and quite bland. Poached eggs on both dishes were cooked well. Coffee was good but overall the breakfast was lacking flavour.

Such deliciousness - coffee, food, atmosphere, but who can wait that long on the way to work? Daark has all it takes to make it a success, but maybe it needs a 'hole-in-the-wall' coffee outlet around the corner, in the carpark to satisfy those who...More

Hi there, that's a good question. Never thought of checking that out. I have seen patrons drinking craft beer but whether that's a BYO or the cafe is officially licensed, I couldn't say for certain. I would suggest you call... More
