Food good, staff pleasant but no one over 25. The service is very slow. It took well over half an hour to serve breakfast on Sunday then the bacon came overcooked and everything was cold.

Went here for breakfast while on our holiday, food was ok, coffee was terrible, bitter and warm. Staff didn't want to be there, a smile and some manners wouldn't go astray! Very unhelpful unpleasant bunch.

This restaurant/cafe looks inviting, boasts a brilliant menu, organic foods, gluton free, etc. etc. Unfortunately the service are a bunch of cool hipsters without a clue. I ordered a tea. It took 20 minutes! They move slowly, cannot bring themselves to double task, and take random breaks with nobody covering the espresso or bussing, etc. We tried again for dinner... More

Visited Vibes this morning for breakfast. My order was almond muesli with fruit and yoghurt, and a cup of coffee. Coffee was fine but the $13 muesli and fruit order was very overpriced. A small bowl of commercial muesli...maybe 2/3 of a cup, if that, a tablespoon of yogurt, no milk ( which was ok by me, but I have... More

A plate of wedges took over 45 minutes to arrive (we eventually had to take it away in a doggy bag as we ran out of time). People at a neighbouring table were told their toasted sandwich would take 'another ten minutes'. What... More

Great food good people, awesome range of healthy eating. It has a vibe what can I say, great for young people to hang out. Bright indoors good flow to the outdoors. Got the healthy swing on good food. I felt happy with my meal size, I'll be back.
