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.

The food here is 3 times the price of what it should be. We didn't order any because of this. Drinks were average. There are much better places in Leura.

Delicious and quick food. Coffee and sweets too. We had a ham on focaccia that was toasted to perfection and still warm when we ate it at the park. The staff is fast and very friendly. The coffee was perfectly made as well. Lots of people eating in as well. So many choices, vegetarian and gluten free. Check it out!

We used to love this place years ago. This morning we went for breakfast with the young kids. Despite knowing the meals were for kids, black pepper was put all over the kids meals before leaving the kitchen. The poached eggs were all overdone and had no run in the yolk at all. Bacon was dry and overcooked. At least... More

I cannot fault the pie and pastries that we had, nor the efficient way in which we were served, and the choices certainly appeared to be home made, if microwaved, and fairly tasty. Staff were efficient but not friendly, which was so like most Australians that we met, but I suppose that they know that most people are on day... More
