Such a charming, funky, cool little breakfast spot. Very fresh ingredients, wonderful extras such as homemade ketchup, truly a unique breakfast experience. All of the young people who work there are super friendly and they serve up some real food, prepared well. We'll be back, just wish they weren't a 2 hour drive from where we live.

After waiting without any reason for 10 minutes in the sun an unfriendly waitress told me, I could take a seat anywhere I wanted. Food was non-inspiring average. I was looking for some nice breakfast experience but encountered a desolate place instead.

The food is decent I'll give it that. Other than that this place has nothing going for it. Extremely slow service, expect to wait over an hour for your meal. What should be an 30 min meal turns into an hour and a half. The waiters do a poor job. And the bathroom is located in a dungeon. I would... More

This is a unique restaurant from all aspects. Specialized in breakfast. Small and old school. Two staff in kitchen, two on serve. Very efficient, and expert. We tasted almost all options. We all satisfied. We would definitely go again. And order pancake. Do not miss it. I would recommend they look after aircon only.

My 17 year old son found this place via Google Maps. We went on a Monday (July 4). We were a party of five and had to wait about 10-15 minutes for a table. The restaurant is tiny so expect a wait. We arrived around 10:15 or so. The menu has many diverse options. I opted for the Brie/pear chutney/walnut... More

We had breakfast here and the place is a little gem. If you like old school feel and don't mind a little wait, I would recommend this place for a hearty breakfast or brunch :) It opens at 9am and closes at 3pm. Serves food ranging from toast to burgers. Bagels, eggs, soup, pancakes, sandwiches etc are also common on... More

We had to wait an hour to get our food on top we waited 20mins to have a table. We were 2. We didn't get our food at the same time and mine was already cold. The waitress was rude and she didn't know what she was doing. And paying the bill was another 15mins... Never again.

Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
