We ate breakfasts, lunch and dinners at the Emporium over two days during a recent stay at the Art Deco Masonic Hotel. The food was amazing with pizzas and the coconut chicken salad real stand outs. The bar was also amazing with great selections of wine, beer and cocktails. All of this is set in a unique Art Deco decor... More

Beautiful Art Deco building, decorated internally as well- very eclectic and interesting. Delicious meal, fast friendly service - we went back the next night as well. Not a very long menu, but enough variety and we had dessert as well.

Lovely location, nice Art Deco. Service poor - the waitress was a bit miserable and they managed to miss the side order (which then came back under as it was rushed) and the bill too a while to come. Food ok overall but let down by the service.

Love their cocktail list! Delicious and seasonal, we loved sitting outside in the sunshine. Ordered from their small plates menu which makes it easy. Ended up adding a pizza after our 3rd cocktail. Great casual place to hang out, excellent atmosphere, staff and food.

The I-site recommended we eat here and it was very good. Part of the Masonic Hotel it felt really grand with lots of items around to set the period. We enjoyed our food and the ambience with views out to the front. The toilets are well worth a visit too!
