This cafe on Parnie St is a hidden gem. It doesn't look much from the outside, but, go in and you'll find an enthusiastic owner who is proud of his cafe and food, whose hand decorated map walls are amazing, whose cafe seats come from old trains, and whose delicious sandwiches are named after all the major railway stations in...

I have been twice now, and it is a lovely spot for something to eat! Tasty and decent sized French toast with a selection of extras to go with it. Very polite and pleasant staff :) Would happily eat there regular if I lived closer!!

My boyfriend and I went for egg benedicts. it was a little bit busy at the cafe and only 1 waitress, so you have to be a bit patient with that. Ordered both salmon and ham. Both looked great and tasted very good as well. who doesnt like freshly made breakfast anyway? But I would prefer having some potatoes cubes... More

Great menu and high quality food, excellent service and a very high standard of hygiene in no small part down to the owner tony's hands on approach. Quirky mix of clientele and decor. Anyone would feel welcome from artists to lawyers. First rate.

Love this cafe and the bus chairs they've used. We went for breakfast, the eggs Benedict were great, a very generous portion. It's just around the corner from monorail music and a few other music destinations.

Small cafe / restaurant with train theme. Nice staff excellent food. Can be a bit crowded. Probably not all that children friendly.

If you like a sandwich, you have to try this place. Retro interior, and a great range of euro themed sandwiches!
