Agree with the majority of reviews on this place. For a $19.00 pie and salad I was expecting to be able to eat it at least. The salad had two tomato heads in it, a hair on my plate, a clearly home made pie that failed miserably, pretty much dog food taste and texture filling. They did manage to make... More

Attracted to pastries in window while touring George street in the shadow of the Harbour Bridge. The pastries were ok. We picked up a bottle of water and iced tea and wanted an Apple Tart and Chocolate and Hazelnut layered pastry. We were encouraged to go and wait outside for service. It never came. We went back in and got... More

I really should read trip advisor BEFORE I visit a place. I don't go looking for bad places (who does?) but rather a nice meal, hoping to be impressed enough to want to come back the next time. If I had seen the list of reviews that preceded mine I am thinking that I would indeed have 'kept on walking'.... More

We are easy going people, we understand sometimes people get it wrong. But to get so many things wrong in such a simple order only tells me one thing, NEVER GO BACK. It was doomed from the start. Was told they had fresh orange juice, was given mango juice in a bottle. I got my fiance gluten free bread, she... More

Apparently to order eggs without bread is "too complicated" for the kitchen. To ask for an iced coffee with no cream or ice cream is also too much trouble. When you dare to query the bill you're told by the "manager" that the contents of dishes are clearly noted on the menu (is only asked if there was just a... More

We were hoping for a simple all day breakfast but the staff were not engaged or helpful the food was poor. if we walked a few more yards the choice would have been so much better. Its started badly when we asked for an omelette and the waitress asked what eggs we wanted. The omelette was very average and I... More

It's right on George Street and the first cafe you'll see, but keep walking to Argle and Renaissance Patisserie. Baked items looked good, but my $16 mini chicken pie had a cardboard crust the knife would barely cut and a gummy, pasty, tasteless filling. When I told the waiter, he shrugged. To top it off, this is one of the... More

One waiter spilled my girlfriends coffee on the table, spilled more coffee while trying to clean it! The other waiter dropped my toasted sandwich, took it inside and came back with another one (only 30 seconds later!). The bill was served 2 minutes after the order was put on the table (even though we had not asked for it yet),... More

We had a mixture of pies, paninis and calamari. All nice but not especial. We enjoyed our food and as we were on the move it was ideal fare. We had no complaints but neither were we salivating for more. It's probably a little above the average score. The service was very good and we enjoyed the outdoor seating at... More

The pies that are sold here are full of taste and are good for the price. We enjoyed the pies for a light lunch. The staff were very friendly and yes we would get some take away from them again. The pastries were very nice and very rich apparently according to my partner. There is no scenic view of the... More
