Walked there from Peppers for a couple of early morning Mochas. They were great at the going price but what set the establishment apart was the husband and wife team operating this small establishment. Genuine kindness is refreshing, particularly in Oz. "Thank you and Aloha"...More

Muffins were fresh (only one type available), coffee was good, one person working was very busy taking orders, preparing food and baking. I am sure service is friendlier if you are a local as many of the previous reviewers seemed to be.
