We had lunch during a tour at this place and were pleasantly surprised. The food was wonderful, the staff attentive and efficient, and the manager friendly and engaging. It's nothing fantastic but good, solid, dependable food that tastes good. It was a quaint, cute little place with a lot of character that we would return to if in the area... More

Great food, friendly and the owner tells people to call in for breakfast if the lights are on. I often call in there and enjoy a coffee at the street table before leaving for my photography start point. Last week it was cool with a gentle breeze blowing and nobody around but me. Love the place.

Popped in for a coffee. A terrible flat white. Accepted an offer for another one, still terrible. Why can't Australians make a good coffee anymore? We used to be well known for our coffee making skills. The milk is so supposed to be silky, not like an instant with a bit of crema on top and certainly not boiling hot.... More

I went there with my husband on an organised trip. We had a choice of 5 dishes which sounded good but upon arrival to my mind they were all ghastly. Overcooked, stodgy and un appetising can't remember when I had a worst meal. The waitress was kindness its self shame about the food.

The staff obviously thought they hadn't insulted me enough when they huffed and puffed at me for not knowing where the menus were, so they served me a bitter flat white and a rubbery bowl of pasta, both overpriced, just to make sure I knew I wasn't welcome there. Don't worry guys, I won't be coming back.

We generally visit a couple of times a year and always drop in for the French chocolate... It no longer exists on the menu.. Now it feels like the bad cafe in the shopping centre, the scones tasted like cake... The coffee bitter... There is no service and plastic chairs now... Did it change hands or something.... Will not be... More

This has got to be one of the worst cafes I have ever been to - and one I will never go back to! My coffee was weak and the cup was dirty. We ordered a chicken wrap to share (it was almost $15 - which is daylight robbery) the wrap was inedible. The chicken looked like lamb - it... More

Decent café at the corner of Leura Mall and easy to get to. Main course is pricey but quality is assured. WiFi is available without any fuss. Good coffee, had the latte. Staff looked quite tired and jaded though. Classical mountain music is played throughout the day there.

Bacon and egg roll - one pc of bacon with an egg. That's it. $11.00. If you are visiting this area, try other cafés before coming here. This can be a last resort if the others are full. Positive: floor staff are smiling.

This was the first cafe we stopped in on our visit to the area.We shared a slice of quiche at $17 ,which i think is too steep for what you get...basically reheated from a cabinet and been there a while i imagine.Staff for us were friendly enough.Mostly self service anyway.Not one id recommend or go back to.
