My husband, baby and I went here for breki. The staff were so warm, friendly and upbeat! The food was just delicious with very generous potions. The coffee was perfect and we are fussy when it comes to coffee:-) Thanks!

The new owners continue to maintain the original high standards. A delightful open and airy cafe, well located in Ballina's main street. Good service from an attentive staff. Coffee is excellent and prices indeed reasonable.

This was one of the only cafes open in Ballina on New Year’s Day and was quite busy. Well priced, good sized meals and good service. Great value!

I get a coffee here when in Ballina. Interesting, though, that customers wanting to pay have to wait to PayWave until after another customer has finished ordering their "usual" coffee by phone. Annoying. Fruit toast is good.

Half size eggs benedict with a side or mushrooms on Turkish was very very tasty and good size serve. Great coffee, very friendly quick service, I highly recommend this little gem of a cafe.

Nice enough coffee, hot and harmless, albeit a tad bland. Popular spot, with more clientele than other cafes nearby.
