“Coffee needs a bit of kick”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Nice new addition to the stable of Seddon cafes.
Clean & tidy with pretty efficient and attentive service.
Good range of snacks, if a little unusual.
Bright clean room with ample space, if the mummies don't clutter it up with prams.
As with any cafe, quality coffee and a great barista are key.
Bit disappointed on this angle as the coffee on a number of visits was quite weak.
Mr. Barista - a shot of coffee should be a full shot of coffee.
When the coffee issue is sorted out, it should be a great little cafe.

“Another favourite local”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Wanting to try this place out since it opened. With so many good cafes in the area it took us some time to get there and why try something new when it is all so good .....
Finally got a chance last week and we are glad we did.
We did swap tables a few times before we settled at large table at the end in a well designed space with clean lines and a couple of quirky touches (interesting light fittings). Service was good.
Food was great and the chai was perfect. Will back.

“Great place”

Great menu, coffee and staff. This is a stand out in a street full of competitive cafes. The owners have just got it right.
