food is always fantastic

I have always enjoyed the food for this establishment, the coffee needs a bit of work and the staff need to learnt to smile and treat the patrons with a little more respect. But besides below par customer service I have always really enjoyed eating here.

I loved this cafe before it changed owners and I hoped the same high standards of mouth watering dishes would remain but woefully this is not the case I even went back a third time just in case they had two bad days the last two visits I made ,but no my fav dishes were stuffed with huge amounts of...

Beautiful thick doorstop bread pieces, great food combinations (I now make at home their spanakopita omelette w/ spinach, feta and a lovely beetroot dip), they garnish everything with lovely bean sprouts, and if you don't want healthy? they have every decadent option your heart could desire. Great deal for what you get...their breakfasts will feed you for a couple meals.... More

I went here for breakfast on a sunday. We were quoted a 10-20 min wait on a table... Which we did not mind, as we know it can get extremely busy. Finally got a table and sat down at 9:40 we then ordered drinks and breakfast at 9:50. There was only 3 of us, so not a big order. We... More

One of our favourite breakfast spots in Tville! Cool and funky decor. Very child-friendly. The coffee is ALWAYS delicious. Food is super tasty and the service is friendly. Only negative would have to be the portion sizing.... I looked around the restaurant and noticed lots of leftovers on people's plates which is a bit of a shame as I hate... More

It was very hard to choose from the delicious sounding options but I decided on the ceaser eggs with the gluten free option and wow! Tasted delicious and the serve was amazingly large so don't expect to eat later. Kids choices were great but I think it's more geared to adults.

Any cafe that can get me to eat pulled pork for breakfast deserves a medal. Not only this, the size of the breakfast is more than expected.....other cafes around the world should take note.....fair prices, high quality and a full plate. Pity this place is in Townsville and I'm here only 4 times per year.

i do travel a lot, and without a doubt this cafe/restaurant goes above and beyond in its quality of food. just superb, i find it hard to believe the menu creators are from north queensland - for example i had a Peking duck and pumpkin on dough (forgive my poor recollection) and it was truly gorgeous. i cannot sing enough...

Busy little Caffe, often have to wait for a table on the weekend but its well worth the wait! Have not found one thing that isnt delicious. You will not leave hungry portion sizes are generous. Staff always happy and friendly. Always impressed!!
