“Slow service, ordinary food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Visited here for a breakfast snack on Sunday morning. Only ordered toast and coffee and they couldn't coordinate bringing them at the same time. The toast arrived first (after about 15 minutes) and then some 10 minutes later the coffee arrived. There were other people complaining about slow service and one couple waited 20 minutes for take away coffee.

“Mediocre at best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Visited here on a relatively quiet Sunday morning yet the service was extremely slow for we ordered (soy chai and cappuccino). Chai had a distinct flavour of almond milk rather than soy, which wasn't a problem for me but definitely could cause problems for some. The decor is an odd match of old and tacky with the salt and pepper shakers supermarket bought and tacky and the menus are old, tacky and laminated. The women who took my order was grumpy and the staff worked inefficiently. I will not be back and I would definitely not recommend this place. There are far better places in foster than here.

“Very Bland”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Ordered the prawn and all it cosisted of was chicken and prawns on a bowl of lettuce not sure what they class salad as. Banana smoothie was very nice. Probably would not eat here again need to up date menu and define salad.

“Glacial service and food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

Well located in the Forster main street I went here for lunch and the food was terrible and expensive for what I received. I order chicken which took an age to arrive and when it did I found it was raw in the middle. Given my experience I think there are better places to eat in the area.
