A nice friendly little cafe to stop at you can get all types of breakfast here ,this is better than eating in the confines of your hotel and is just up the road from the Clonade hotel.

Excellent value for money. I didn't know eggs could be cooked so many ways! The staff were really friendly. The toilets could do with some upgrading.

Very popular little cafe in the Back Bay area near the Colonnade Hotel. Serves a very wide variety of fare for breakfast plus lunches. Closes at 4pm. Prices are very reasonable and portion sizes are large, plus you get a bottomless coffee for $2.35.

I walked past this place the evening before I went for breakfast, and thought it looked nicer than the hotel's generic offering. I'd stumbled across a hidden gem: The breakfast offerings were vast and many locals were eating there (always a good sign). I had a huge and very tasty omelette and they were happy to accommodate my requests that... More

A great spot for breakfast if staying locally. The staff are friendly and the service is fast. Very well priced too! For less than $20 (not inc tip) we had bottomless coffee and breakfast (huge bacon, egg and cheese bagel and classic eggs benedict). The menu is huge with a vast array of sweet and savoury options to choose from.... More

If the weather is nice, the outdoor seating is a nice feature! They are quite flexible in customizing your order, the service staff is reasonably attentive and all service staff pitch in for each other.... More

Used the place several times and was not disappointed. Service level are dependent on the person serving you. Some are very polite other are average. Start with a... More

Great Breakfast at a very popular place. The food, service and even setting was perfect. The prices for a city restaurant were extremely reasonable. Highly recommend!
