I wanted a quick coffee around Golden Island. Got thrown out from the shopping centre because of fire drill, which got me into really bad mood... Poppyseeds cafe was the only cafe around open as early as 9:40- and yes, it delivered quite nice latte

Always go for breakfast in Poppy Fields. Lovely hot breakfast, freshly cooked! Attentive, friendly service. Only con is that they are so busy and you sometimes have to wait for a seat BUT the wait is worth it :)

Love this place when shopping around town. It's a little hidden gem. Always busy but very accommodating. Lots of choose from on the menu and will normally do anything U ask for. The dessert are all home made and absolutely gorgeous particularly the gluten free brownies! Love this place will always recommend!

Have eaten in this small but always busy Restaurant at lunch time a few times in the past year. Food is really nice with good choice of hot and cold dishes and is very good value. Staff are very friendly and go out of their way to look after their customers. There is a choice of eating inside or outside... More
