The people who own this restaurant really aim to please. Their food is home-cooked, tasty and wholesome. I recommend the tapas in the evening, their smoothies for lunch and the eggs and bacon for breakfast. It's a casual place that is open long hours.

This Cafe has become a bit of a regular for me. The Owners and Staff are friendly, the place is clean, and the coffee is excellent. They also do a great range of meals. They're open 7 days, from 6.30 am for brekky. The food is always nice, and they do a good turnover of meals, so fresh ingredients are... More

Everytime I go there Ive noticed that tables are not cleared ... this looks really untidy and surely poses a health risk .... more attention to detail is required by the somewhat inattentive wait staff ...

This establishment needs to seriously look at their customer service. I've been there several times and it takes ages for staff to take orders and offer the menu to clients. Every time I go there there are uncleared tables from previous customers .... Not good enough! Your customers should be your major concern ....
