the yummiest breakfast with great range to choose from. Spiced honey, yoghurt french toast, and delicate poached eggs, feta and fresh avocado, and muesli and friendly service. I must get to Albury more often so I can return here for another yummy breakfast!

My 10 year old daughter & I went for breakfast before her basketball carnival. Lovely pancakes, great coffee & when I asked where I could buy bananas for between games snacks they gave me 2 of theirs.

The reviews here promised so much...but for me the reality was far from the mark. Very cramped space inside, not particularly comfortable to sit at the tables. The look of the cafe was overall appealing but it didn't feel warm or "rustic" as someone put it. There were not too many other diners while we were there, maybe 8-10 people... More

Sat inside - very cosy. Fantastic coffee. Very nice breakfast - clean flavours. Only thing that stopped me from giving 5 stars was the slow service. While serving staff were very pleasant, it took a long time for breaky to arrive. However, we will stop here next time we visit Albury. Ahhhh the coffee!

I've been here many times for both breakfast and lunch. Great food for a good price. I like all the drawings on the walls. Friendly service, however the food can take a long time to come out if they are busy so you can't be in a rush during peak times. I've been known to place my take away order,... More

I saw this café recommended on Trip Advisor and tried it out as it was close to my hotel. I ended up eating there each morning of my 5 day stay in Albury. Very good coffee. I can recommend the fruit toast with cream cheese, nuts and honey.

Service is a bit slow on weekend, but they are friendly and provide great welcome. The coffee and brunch are great.
