The place is unique and has a character of its own. Each of the food choice on the menu is delicious and the coffee is good too. After placing your order try looking around the place and at the displays while waiting for your food to arrive. There used to be a beautiful golden retriever there but it passed on... More

My daughter just love the burger in this place. We tried a few different burgers each time we visit. And the lava chocolate cake is also one you should not miss. And I simply had to bring my friend here to see the ambience and the friendly service.

I accidentally went into this sort of art gallery and found out there is a little bar counter with tables while you walk further into the house so i had a drink..realizing there is a huge tree in the middle of the house and a huge painted wall..it makes the whole environment super artsy. Nice!

Great place with Great food. the burger are fantastic but most importantly is how the owner design this place to be something worth spending the hour there having lunch. CLoses early and lots of people, be sure to be there early. It's near JOnker street

We found the place after a small walk in the sun and were relieved to find the courtyard like space to be cool and comfortable. The décor was eclectic and the staff smiling and friendly. The burgers we ordered were tasty. The very small number of accompanying potato wedges were really tasty.Two of us were vegetarian and we found the... More

One of the most delicious burgers I've ever had! They also had fresh ginger beer at the time I was there and that was incredible as well. The staff was friendly, and the atmosphere was fantastic. I wish there was a place like this back home.

Lonely planet recommended the place, and it was well deserved! The only thing I want to put a finger on is that you should wait clearing the table to all are finished eating. Brilliant burgers! Crispy fries! Fair prices! Beautiful place!
