“Nice brunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Excellent food, excellent friendly staff, excellent quirky laneway location. We would've given them an excellent rating if they hadn't forgotten our brunch order. Oh well, one time visit being out-of-towners and we weren't in a hurry that morning anyways. The server was truly nice and apologetic, and we enjoyed a lovely meal at the end.

“Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We went there for breakfast. We both got the breaky with the corn and zucchini frittas as they sounded yummy. I don't like poached eggs so it cost a bit extra to get scrambled. The food was pretty yummy. The coffee was ok. It was very busy with people coming and going, ordering take away. The service was friendly but not the quickest.

“Cool for school”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

You know a place is good when its packed while the surrounding cafes are half empty. The service is charming and entertaining, the coffee is strong and the food excellent - particularly great are the kusundi eggs....yum!!!

“Breakfast, lunch or coffee. One word, Superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

This place is a gem in Hardware lane.
The staff are cool, the food is tasty and you can graze or eat in a hurry.... and as you eat you may discover you've been eating off one of your mother's plates.
Too funny.

“Another fantastic breakfast!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

Arrived at this place for a breaky based on TA reviews. A pokey little cafe like most in Hardware Lane, however the service a food was excellent. Staff were excellent, the food was spot on and it seemed quite popular with local workers with the constant flow of people.

Highly recommended
