“As good as it gets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

impressed with the modern setting with infused with nice coffee smell. It was perfect for our wake-me-up labour weekend.

Had the coffee and muffin deal. Coffee is top notch, raspberry white chocolate passion fruit muffin was to die for. Need to come back for a full sit down meals soon.

“Food was exceptional”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

Went to fiddlesticks as a family of 5 and couldn't speak highly enough about the food. the salmon wings with licorice mayo were something else as was the Blue Nose with pistachio and lemon. Best fish meal I have had for a very long time ! Hard to fault overall except perhaps the wine list which, while reasonably priced, didn't offer quality to match the fantastic food.

“Great vibe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Delicious food, a great place to eat in the heart of town - particularly as there is not a lot else that has opened in that area yet. Friendly staff, good atmosphere. I'd recommend.
