Great character with old cinema seats and tables made from palettes as the setting. The coffee is excellent and so too are their light snacks, such as the fruit bread. I haven't tried the full food menu, but it looks delicious - lots of reasons to return.

Not great seeing dog on table and seat. Staff should probably address this health issue. Coffee just great

Go to this coffee shop quite regularly and nearly always get their white choc and blueberry muffin. Yum!!! Nicest muffin I think I've ever had. Their fruit toast is also yummy, with heaps more to choose from in their cabinet. Though I don't drink coffee, my friend says its one of the best she's had.

Tucked away with a quirky atmosphere in the mall, Canteen offers great coffee and an interesting selection of breakfast items with a Mediterranean twist. Always has a a vast selection of regular clientele.

The coffee is always superb and the service is always friendly and fast. I've been coming here for years. The outstanding service by Jordan and his team is really impressive! 5+ stars. Plus always...

Great cafe with good menu and and great service. Unfortunately for me I had already eaten prior to a business meeting I had here. My guest had a sensational breakfast that I would have loved to have eaten. Just a great place, with easy parking out the front
