This little cafe was bustling with trade even though it was a public holiday. It is a basic, no-fuss cafe that serves good food for breakfast at a decent price. Whilst the service level may be lacking to some regard (they seemed to be a touch under-staffed), they operate on what I would describe as ruthless German efficiency - their... More

Had all day breakfast which consisted of eggs, burnt bacon and doughy bread. Waitress was rude and then it was 40 minutes before we received our simple fare. My husband had time to go out and move his car and come back. Atmosphere is basic, food is less than ordinary. Go elsewhere !

We stopped in here for dinner on a Sunday night as there were very few other places open. The food was quite ordinary - we all had a pasta of some kind which was homemade (which was nice) but wasn't of a great standard. That did leave room for cake though, so we got stuck into that instead. It's a... More

I chose this cafe purely on the merit of offering vegan breakfast options. I had the vegan breakfast for $11.50, which was good value. The food was a bit bland but plenty and not all bad. Coffee (loose leaf) and tea were very good. Service was slow in any way; I was given cow milk at first with my tea;... More

Unaccomadting staff, with one extremely rude passive aggressive waitress saying, "I'm just going to stand here and watch, it's actually kind of amusing" as we apologised while trying to move a table to fit into the small tables. I thought it was her job to help us, not stare at us while saying condescending things to us! This waitress according... More

When they bring scramble was on top of toast and sliced horrible mushrooms was on top of scramble eggs and funny part is when i pay bill, then they... More

I have been twice to eat - both times, we had a different server, and both times they were so welcoming and friendly! They have got great vegetarian choices (I highly recommend the 'Cafe Zuppa Pasta' sans chicken) and are decently priced. The second time we went, only a day or so ago, we enquired about a particular dish that... More

What a change this place has undergone! I visited some years ago and was far from impressed, however things seem to have drastically changed. The food was incredible, very well presented and value for money. The barista was alone on a busy sunday morning and managing to serve eat in customers while making many take away coffees at the same... More
