“Fantastic Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2011

Great place to go for a special breakfast. Especially recommend the poached eggs on toasted bread with bacon and don't forget to order the lamb and mint sausages as a side. Wife had the scrambled eggs with feta cheese equally delicious. Great coffee and service too. Highly recommended.

“Slow Decline...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2011

The good food & coffee have had our family persisting with Lime, but finally we have decided that the service time is just too long. 15 minutes to take a breakfast order, then 45 minutes for the food to arrive - no the cafe wasn't full and there were 6 staff out front and three in the kitchen, so just disorganised. It isn't one-off, it's always like this, even if you are one of a couple of tables - they really work to their own beat. If you have heaps of time and aren't worried about delays, give it a go because the food is nice and the coffee is great.

“Breakfast with a flair”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2011

Thanks to a mention in the Lonely Planet, three generations enjoyed breakfast, al fresco, on a sunny late summer morning.The youngsters were glad to choose from a kids' menu.The choice for the adults was broad, including waffles, corn fritters, and eggs benedict. The emphasis is definitely on lime, with, for example, lime instead of lemon in the latter's hollandaise. A great start to the day!
