Very good place for lunch monday to friday. with quite a number of selection of fresh food. The dining area is bright with natural light. The only problem is there is no toilet for visitor. Nothing open on weekend.

The Cloisters Square is again it houses business. It is old but not as old as some places in the world. Australia isnt old at all.
