“Great breakfast and coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

Breakfast on a Monday morning was great. Interesting menu and excellent service and coffee. The cafes in my home town of Goulburn could learn a thing or two from this place. House made beans were a highlight - I'm told they are flavored with chorizo and butter, and the scrambled eggs were rich with cream and butter.

By the way, the cafe's website is one of the best for an eatery I have seen - well worth a look. They have a great collection of music related memorabilia on the walls, free wifi, and I would very much like this place to be my local, While I don't want to move back to Sydney, maybe the operators would like to make a tree change one day!

“wholesome and fairly tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

I have regularly eaten at Iku (it is a chain of healthy restaurants). Some of the food is a bit heavy for the summer but it is all organic and fairly interesting. Of all the branches I have been to, this one at Rozelle is the friendliest and most comfortable. It is situated in the heart of Rozelle amongst a number of other little eating houses. Would I recommend it? If you are vegetarian or just feel like some food that tastes and is good for you, then yes.

“Cool vibe, free wifi, awesome menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

Love this place - the staff are friendly and service is quick. Its packed after 10.30 am on weekends so if you have the luxury of a mid week brunch here it is recommended. The eggs 'beanedict' are the best I've had in Sydney - they are rich though so if you prefer lighter fare then the vege bean is also a delight. The surprising and delightful option is the zucchini fritters. Unusual but delicious combination of flavours.

They have gluten free breads available and happily accommodate the request for modifying the beanedict to come on GF bread, as well as having 1 or 2 GF slices available too.

Coffee is nice and sharp, location is perfectly across from the 7/11 so grab a paper and enjoy the food and space.
