“Give up on the diet and enjoy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

OMG the carrot cake is amazing and what do I do have iced coffee. Now I am sugared out, but well with it. Sit out side and face the street, look up and enjoy the beautiful architecture before you.

“Tight Squeeze”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

There are too many restaurants and coffee shops in Balmain that offer good fare and coffee with enough space to move, for this Cafe to compete. It is best to buy take away coffee and a choose a lovely cake and go sit in the nearby park under a tree.

“Don't pass by.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012 via mobile

You could be forgiven if you walked straight past this cafe. It's small, unassuming front makes it blend in with all the other cafe's, And it's only when you venture inside and try the food you realize why it's different.
I could review it, but it's best if you try it yourself.

“Good basic German food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

I've been here many times over the years but moreso when I just needed a break from fine dining or fusion food.
It is not great food but ceratinly you know you are eating German food.
I have not had breakfast here as many of the readers obviously have but I too can swear by the desserts - love the strudels.

“Great for breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

Had breakfast here with friends on New Year's day. Delicious homemade beans with perfect poached eggs on sourdough.

Tables are a little on the small side but not too bad really.

Unfortunately, the lunch menu looked horribly short of vegetarian options but this is a super place to go for breakfast.
