Wonderful everything

Found this great cafe on my second day here. The menu is varied but even more pleasing for me is the coffee. Being a bit of a 'coffee snob' it is marvellous to be able to say this coffee is one of the best that I have ever had. For me it was on a par with the amazing Weka... read more

I went there with my husband and 15 month old baby and they didn't have high chairs, so we had to leave. We were disappointing as we were looking forward to try a new place and went there because of the good reviews this place had.

Nice coffee, nice very very fast food, good atmosphere but the staff lack the energy they don't look like they want to be there at all, I've been there about 50 times and is always great, but it isn't nice to receive a coffee without a smile at all!

What a great spot! The Breakfast menu offered the usual fare, but with a few twists. I quite often try the Eggs Benedict, but on offer here is the Eggs Montreal as another option with salmon, cream cheese and capers. Very nice, and beautifully presented on toasted sourdough with a smooth hollandaise. The coffee is from C4 and brewed well... More

Our hotel recommended us this lovely cafe and it turned out a perfect breakfast spot. The place felt very energetic inside, a nice blend of locals and tourists. It felt quite authentic and friendly. The breakfast dishes were delicious, and we especially enjoyed the savory muffins (we took some to go). Cosy, intimate, vibrant and very good food.

Good variety and selection in the cabinet. The salads looked so good I got a selection of three of them, with a vegetable fritata. Very tasty and was perfect lunch dinning. Staff were super friendly, and the service I got was very quick.

Pumping on a Sunday at brunch time, this place was pretty good, although very noisy. I had a savoury muffin which was humongous, and my friend had a coffee. Unfortunately the table we were at was not flat (as was the floor on one whole side of the café) so when the waitress put the coffee down it spilt a... More

The sweet pancakes come with a caramelized banana on top and even taste like they have banana inside of them. I'm a big pancake fan and these did not disappoint! The French toast was also very good. Great breakfast place overall!

I had muesli and fruit which was excellent along with good coffee. The bread looked tempting. The casual seating was inviting and comfortable. Many of the other diners looked like they were regulars.

Big breakfast was OK - had much better for half the price at $22. Pumpkin feta spinach (and something else) filo was dry with ingredients mashed unrecognisably together - odd taste. Coffee was nice, parking difficult. Nothing spectacular overall. Kids at other table looked like they were loving the pancakes though.
