Great little place for burgers and milk shakes. Love their food. I get the jalapeno burger and really like it. They also have good coffee as they are a coffee shop as well.

I lived very nearby but had not try it for years. So decided to try it out one fine Saturday morning. Boy, I was not disappointed! Ordered the BLT and big breakfast and both are just heavenly! The scrambled egg are with cheese and so fluffy. Veges served are also fresh. One of my favorite breakfast spot now.

Nice relaxed atmosphere for breakfast. Do a pretty decent English breakfast with all the trimmings, including bacon and home made sausage. The Tea, could be better not sure where they get the water from. Reasonably priced and pretty good service.

This is the second time we have been to this venue. While the staff appear to be honest and helpful the food was not up to par. Having said that, the coffee was very good. It's time for the Cafe to deliver authentic food. Also the chicken pies were mostly potato and to be honest I failed to find any... More

Been twice. Once for dinner and once for breakfast. Coffee us great but that's where it ends. Ordered pulled pork for dinner, came dry and over cooked. Ordered chorizo saugaue for breafast, got some sort of mince. Will not try for a 3rd, shame really as it has so much potential.

Dear Jerry, Thanks for trying our place a first and a second time. Really appreciate your review on the Pulled Pork as I just spoke to our cook regarding the very same thing. However, I will call you on your review of our Chorizo Con Huevos. You said, "Ordered chorizo saugaue for breafast, got some sort of mince." I don't... More

Not a good option for dinner. Not sure why they call there Chicken Salad Asian. The only thing Asian about it is the chilli dressing. Where is the coriander,mint,red onion,peanuts? Charge a bit more and make it a decent option for people who don't like burgers.

Food is great, but it gets pretty hot due to the type of roofing they had. Dress light as u would appreciate it, when feeding up at the place & catching up w your friends. Burgers are delish!!!
