“Expect a wait, so make a booking!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Don't plan on coming if you're rushed for time. A booking is required if you're visiting during peak breakfast hours. The food was decent and the service was pretty good. The price was a little expensive for the quality of the food.

“huge portions - great taste”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

we went here for breakfast on a weekday and were lucky to get a spot immediately. We both had Drexel's special and it was extremely delicious, but way too much although we were hungry. Coffee flat was also very nice. Best breakfast of 4 weeks vacation!

“Brilliant breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Friendly and fast service, large menu choice and reasonably priced - big portions so will keep you going for the day. Coffee is drinkable but if you are really fussy probably best to avoid and pop next door to Coffee Culture afterwards (to be fair I did only had the bottomless cup coffee, so cant comment on the coffee off the menu that you pay extra for) . The Corned beef hash and hash browns are to die for, eggs well cooked,perfect pancakes, genuine maple syrup. Very busy but they handled this very well - we were there for around an hour from 8.15 to 9.15am on a Tuesday (on a rainy day during school holidays) and all tables were full during this time. Only negative for me is I would prefer it if they were away from the very chaotic Westfield Mall, however would definatly recommend and cant wait to find an excuse to go back....
