Delicious, good quality ingredients, great coffee and friendly, attentive service. We were stoaked to come across this spot on a Sunday morning when wandering Crown St looking for a brunch spot during a weekend away in Sydney. Gnome didn't disappoint!

Great little cafe amongst the many on crown st. Had no issues getting an outside table for Monday lunch. Service friendly and swift. Food great. Fresh and full of flavour. Coffee great! Cinnamon cronuts would have been my only average part. Was still ok, but found brewtown much better. Loved this little place and with so many food and coffee... More

Friendly staff, great service and delicious food! It can feel a little squashy though when it is busy.

I couldn't believe my luck! This cafe still has the perfect combination of very good coffee, fresh quality dishes, in an unpretentious space. The blackboard menu is cramped with choice and difficult to pick a favourite dish. I love their blueberry bagels.

A reliable place for a great coffee on busy Crown St, where a good coffee can sometimes be hit and miss. Nice little corner spot with comfy seating, friendly staff and consistently good food.
