Middle Eastern fusion...Fresh and innovative...a terrific little cafe in a great central position...It feels a little like a Melbourne lane way here. Very professional and we will certainly be back again..

Very good quality coffee, although I would recommend you ask for it be extra hot as it can be a little underheat. Not usually a problem for me but maybe just their style.

Have been here a few times! Have had the lamb kofta and tangine and also the caramelized banana all are delicious!! Coffee can sometimes take awhile on weekend because they are always super busy!!

The staff were very friendly and helpful with meal choices. The food was fresh and came out quite quickly. It was a chilled atmosphere and we really enjoyed out early morning breakfast :)

Have tried canteen a few times now, and each time has been the same experience.. Extremely slow, bland, impersonal.. Thankfully the coffee is quite good though, making the 25 minute wait for 2 coffees during a quiet time almost worth it.

Rude. Arrogant. Basically turned away because my boyfriend is in a wheelchair and couldn't sit inside. The first word the waitress said was "no you can't sit inside with a wheelchair" she didn't try to help us, just turned us away. It was not only embarrassing for my boyfriend but also hurtful. They said that prams aren't allowed in either..... More

I'm in a wheelchair. A rude staff member opening line to me was i was not allowed to sit inside because my wheelchair was a workplace health and safety violation. This experience is disgusting. I will not eat here and as a local of 30 years I will be telling my network of friends not to come here either. Bad... More

Found this little coffee shop just behind the main street of Burleigh and really enjoyed the coffee and relaxed surroundings. Worth a visit.
