“Excellent for any meal or just coffee!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Excellent place! Not in the kind of place you'd expect (more of an Asian food arcade) but excellent coffee, staff, breakfast and dinner. Went there 5 times over the last week and will go back there in the future!

“So different..... Why wouldn't you go here ?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

So...at the top of a dirty little arcade is this excellent and very different venue full of memorabilia and owned by a very proud young fella who really is one of the best baristas.

After having dinner, two breakfasts and two coffee stops here I base my review on these visits:

The coffee.... If you get the owner (I think) with the longer curly hair and beard making the coffee you will get one of the best coffees in Australasia. If it is one of the others....it will be ordinary...you take your chances.

Breakfast....superb. Different style menu, plentiful, exceptional taste.

Diner..... Really really really good. There is nothing on this menu which is not delightful, different and flavoursome.

I was with a group of 5 and everyone raved about their meal. I had the pork and would highly recommend.

Really good food and service. Fresh, tasty and excellent prices. All our group had different and all thought the meal was terrific. Not one complaint.

“Good food, good service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

I went here for the first time with some friends, it was supposed to be a quick drink but after looking at the menu it turned into a 3 course meal. The decor is so interesting, a nice difference from other places in surfers. The waiter was good at his job and new his products and what beers/ drinks go with what dish. Could not find a fault her at all. I have quite a few holiday makers come through my work and I always recommend this little place as a must do!

“A rose amongst the thorns”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

After a fairly uninspiring day in Surfers, we were lucky enough to come across this quirky spot. Stunning tapas served by knowledgeable staff . We enjoyed pumpkin ravioli, tea smoked duck breast with caramelised figs and slow cooked Pork Belly. They were even good enough to share their Raspberry mint martini recipe!!
