Fantastic service, great food

Delicious wraps (had the BBQ chicken) and super helpful staff. They went out of their way to accommodate our particular nutritional needs. Would definitely come back.

Wanted to try this out to avoid the chains in Richmond. Great selection of breads, salads and fillings. Great to see Gluten Free bread on the menu and it was actually very good (didn't get the brand used). Cakes looked tasty but didn't buy any on this occasion. Service was okay, again nothing amazing or offensive. Overall pleasant enough and... More

Really great place to get lunch. Try the salad bowls with fresh marinated meat for a healthy option or if you're feeling naughty, a slice of massive cake. Best place to lunch in Richmond.

Went for breakfast this morning and will never return. Arguable quality, the muffin was probably old and the coffee burned. My partner wasn't happy either with his carrot cake and coffee. Never again!

I am sorry that you had a bad experience with us today - what you describe is certainly not the standard that you should expect from us. We will speak to the team who served you this morning and give them further training. Next time you are in Richmond, we would like to offer you a breakfast on the house,... More

Enjoyed a quick lunch here that was very enjoyable. We had a made-to-order sandwich, and pie with mash .. both delicious. There is a choice of eat-in or takeaway. As it was lunchtime we only just got a table. Service was friendly and efficient.

First time visit the cafe in a Saturday afternoon, it's not busy and plenty of seats. The cafe is clean and staff are friendly. About the food, I'd say this cafe provide reasonable choice of sandwiches and it tastes good, but I don't think it is something very special.
