Had a quick bite to eat for morning tea. My decaf coffee was excellent. Not easy to make a great decaf. Also the baking was fresh and of a high quality

We visited on a busy Saturday. Service is very attentive and good selection of brunch dishes. The only suggestion I have is switch to a different brand of green tea ... something with more gusto.

My girlfriend and I had the velocity big breakfast. It was so good. Eggs, bacon, sausages, hash Brown, mushrooms, toast, absolutely perfect and lots of it! Be prepared to fall into a food coma afterwards!

It was windy and cold outside so my wife and I chose the creamy pumpkin soup which came as a large serving with garlic toasted bread. An excellent serving. We followed up with very good coffees. Not a large cafe but has seating for about 30.

a good place for a coffee and a read of the paper. Nice lunch, shame they don't open for dinner as I am sure it would be good too.

Sent the coffee back, and asked for a double shot but it came back pretty much the same- weak and milky. Atmosphere is cool, and the food is nice. Maybe it was just one bad coffee, so will give it another try.
