The food was average. They need to clean the tables with a WET cloth and the staff need to smile and be cheerful. The service is very SLOW, we had to wait both times there when the place wasn't full.

Coffee is ok but the staff need to be more friendly. We didn't order much food in our group so I can't comment on that. We went as it is a great location for us but found it the same as last year when we visited, that is, you're tourists, we're happy to take your money but don't expect us... More

Arrived for brunch at 11:30; was great that we could still order off the breakfast menu as well as the lunch menu; ordered at the counter coffees and omelette's; coffee's arrived within 10 minutes; omelettes soon after, coffee was hot and omelettes were a generous serve and very tasty on crunchy toasted sourdough. Will definitely be back!

Went here for breakfast. Seemed disorganised and slow - waited over 15 mins for someone to acknowledge us to take an order and never happened. Ended up walking out and going across the road for a coffee. Won't be back.

We came here for breakfast and were served by the most rude and arrogant waitress. She took our coffee order asking whether we wanted our short black in a mug or cup, then when we were about to pay our $19.80 bill by card she looked at us and shook her head and said "oh no, there is a $20... More

Food choice good selection, nice and friendly staff. A bit of a wait to get served at the bar for drinks. Kids didn't enjoy the milk shakes they didn't taste chilled. Overall enjoyable and reasonably priced.

I came here for lunch, the food was on par and pretty damn good! The bar was stocked with everything you could imagine. The only issue I have is the service there was this one lady and I'm not sure if she was juSt having a bad day or what but having worked in the hospitality business for a long... More

You just want this place to be good....it has the makings of being awesome but misses the mark on almost every level. Just seem to be inept at service, cleanliness, professionalism. It has so much atmosphere and character, just seriously lacks decent management. The older French lady is awful. If it wasn't in such a great spot with so much... More
