Great breakfast. The food was delicious and came out relatively quickly and the service from the waitress was extremely friendly.

I used to eat here the time but have not been back in a long time so had decided to have brunch here the other week. To say that I was disappointed is an understatement. I ordered the big breakfast (toast, eggs, bacon, sausage, hash brown, etc) plus a pot of tea. Upon receiving the breakfast the first thing that... More

The food is always good, you can always get a table, it is always cheap. Great for breakfast & lunch, but dinner is also available 7 days a week. You won't be disappointed. Menu expansive enough for all tastes and preferences. Great just for coffee as well.

I have my daily breakfast here.. They do a great cappuccino, lots of mixed fruit juices but the very must eat is the divine crep: crep, banana, nutella, ice cream, strawberry and sugar.. Massively tasty!!! The service is kind and smily.. Love it!!

I've been here several times, and I enjoy it. The coffee is good, and the food I've had is good as well. I've only had the chicken Caesar wrap but I really like it. It's a pretty cozy little cafe. A huge chicken Caesar wrap and coffee for $12 is not a bad deal when you think about Sydney prices.... More

Owner Jane is Very Rude - Cockroaches - Food is Poor Quality - Overpriced - Very Bad Attitude. Other local Cafes and Restaurants Outweigh this one for Quality and Service by Far.

Elderly & Disabled Customers are often asked to leave before served as their "appearance" doesn't meet the Owner's desired "image" requirements - Appalling attitude !! Regular patrons are taken for granted & treated with utter rudeness - Food is not cheap & is very nasty - Coffee is disgusting - No wonder this place is generally empty of customers most... More

Small humble restaurant with big open windows so you can watch the world go by. Food was well prepared and tasty, just lacked a little finesse in plating. Service was very good, we were not rushed through our meal which I like. We were using a voucher but that did not mean service was any less which I also like.... More

Neighborhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighborhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colorful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighborhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
