“Pretentious Sydney at its best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Great venue and could be really fantastic but the finishing touches aren't there.

Excellent produce - simple food well put together. Coffee average. Had a cappucino and no crema at all. Very flat white.

Small serves and top end prices which I would not have minded but slow service after having to queue for 15 mins to even order food.

“Fresh and tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Yes..the queue was long...and a little bit of a wait on food....but it was packed in there with people waiting for a table to become free. Coffee was good and will be back to try lunch!

“Nice "old-factory" atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

The place is busy but it adds to the charm. The food is good. You won't have an enormous amount of food in your plate but you can get a nice croissant, they are good (I am French, I know what I am talking about!). A must for a Sunday morning breakfast!
There are also nice spots outside during the warm season.

“Self service...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

B'fast closes at 11:15am sharp & lunch opens at 12pm. Food is delicious but pricey for what it is (all self service with no waitstaff - you queue up to choose your food from a few items behind the counter and then queue up again for coffee/drinks and then queue up again for a table). If you're not here by 12pm, queues are extremely long.
