We enjoyed a Sunday lunch at GB and it was fabulous. I ordered the special of the day which was a red wine braised chicken salad with speck, harissa mayo, toasted almonds, parmesan and rocket (I skipped the poached egg). A tasty, filling meal. The other meal ordered for the table was the pulled pork omelette, which is on the... More

Friendly little cafe with quaint seating and lovely food. It's always crowded, which is actually it's downside. Still, we'll go back again.

We loved this place. The service was outstanding and the food just as good. Highly recommend the baked eggs. Great coffee in a relaxed and funky space, we will return very soon.

When I'm feeling up, I love this cafe to pieces. If I'm tired or stressed, this is not where I go. It is busy - always. Lots of people. Lots of kids. Lots of noise and movement. You will find it upbeat - or wearing - depending on your mood. The food is excellent, service spot on and the decor... More

Cute boutique retro cafe in tertiary style with an all day menu, which we found difficult to understand until explained to us - but the limited range of food was good quality as were their drinks. The service was good and street parking reasonable (although could get crowded). Handy to the Female Factory prison and the Cascade Brewery. Would visit... More

Delicious food - eggs, salads, sandwiches - and great coffee. A good stop after Her Story at the Cascades Female Factory

This place is a nice getaway from the nearby St John's Hospital. It seems to do a roaring trade from family groups. It's a gentle place to go to get your bearings and allow yourself to be nurtured briefly after visiting hours. It opens nice and early but closes early too.

Sick and tired of boring old bacon and eggs? Then this is the cafe for you! I have never had a more inventive and invigorating breakfast. I had the Korean pancake, which was a delightful mixture of crispy savoury pancake, fried eggs and a zesty asian salad. My partner had the baked eggs, which had a delicious Spanish twist. The...
