“Feel the buzz of the market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Nice little cafe with a nice little menu, not too much to choose from so that your head is spinning, because you cannot decide what to have. Lovely friendly young staff. The portions are quite generous for Lunchtime portions. If the weather permits outside eating pleasant and inside is cosy and easy to sit in.

“good coffee, good service, right at the harbour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

found it by walking around and looking for the place that had the most people. retro was it, and it didn't disappoint. Got the coffee and the breakfast, bacon, eggs, toast and mushrooms. excellent to have a good breakfast down by the harbour.

“Get the fruit toast.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Just great. The staff were very nice and knew what they were doing even though it was crazy busy because of the market. Will go back for sure!

“Like Eggs Anyway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is tiny and busy. The breakfast is great and staff are funky and attentive. An ideal location for the galleries and speciality stores.
