Affordable food for the quality but the waitresses have attitude problems. Not a fan of service without a smile. Their iced mocca is basically an iced coffee. But the poached eggs are great!

We ate breakfast here and although they were extremely busy tables were cleared and orders taken and served quickly. This is a small place on the street and the staff were very friendly. Good value for money and great food.

I ended up eating here a few times and always found the food and service to be very good. The location is great, there is a huge range of food available and pleasant outdoor seating. Can be busy at lunch time. I can't comment on the quality of the coffee as I don't drink it, but the fresh juice was... More

This café has very good coffee and lovely food for morning tea or lunch. We found the staff to be friendly and efficient. There are newspapers and magazines to read if you want to linger over your coffee.

Good choice of menu items and everything was fresh. I had poached eggs on toast. Hubby had eggs with feta and mushrooms on toast. Food was good and plentiful for the price. Coffee was good. Tea was very strong and I had to ask for two pots of hot water to try and dilute it a bit. Tables are quite... More

Love the muffins / banana bread at this cafe & very friendly staff. Unfortunately they don't know how to make a coffee properly, my coffee was burned twice.

We had a very good breakfast here. The place was very busy. The service was okay. The outdoor seating was jammed. I had the orange juice, which tasted fresh squeezed, and a poached egg on toast. I heard the fruit salad was fresh and tasty as well. We would return.
