Delicious breakfast with good coffee. Friendly staff and good atmosphere despite being quite busy. Also a bakery that makes great bread. Highly recommend the olive and haloumi bread!

Where does someone start with a great cafe? Coffee of course... wood fire roasted on site. their own unique blends. Crafted into every hot and cold coffee beverage you can think off by REAL baristas.

Not onliy great coffee but a fantastic menu, service and bakery. It is real gem in Armidale and well worth a visit for anyone who loves good coffee and great food. It can get very busy and is lacking large tables but the staff will do everything they can to accomodate you.

Unexpected class after several previous bad coffee experiences in Armidale. Strong organic menu with yummy food and smooth coffee. Relaxing setup - kids loved the courtyard garden. Caught up with friends and will be back. As an added bonus there is quality thrift shopping round the corner.

An eatery that serves both decent coffee and freshly baked bread, with lunch-time treats that are always interesting and enjoyable...and breakfasts that quench any appetite for lunch!

Best coffee in Armidale. Organic sourdoughs are the fab and pretty much everything on the menu is great. On this visit I had eggs benedict that was spot on

My wife and I love this cafe. The bread here is to die for!!! The only sad thing is their coffee cups are to small.
