It's a cozy little place in Observatory. You can eat in or outside. Menu is bar food classics like mozzarella sticks, battered prawns, potato skins with melted cheese, burgers, some salads. Very average food and cakes. But the mango mint crush is awesome and was the reason we came as it is recommended by regulars. We also liked their naked... More

We ate at this spot everyday for a week. The breakfast special was a great value and I loved the hamburger & fries. The staff was so friendly and pleasant to speak with. Our waitress Precious was the nicest person you could ever meet! I can't wait to go back!

Committed the cardinal sin of walking into a quiet restaurant late on a Sunday eve, and had such a lovely time there. Not once did I feel rushed or that they were impatient to get us out. We just had drinks and left, but I'd like to try their menu next time.

We've been there twice this month. Once for late night snack coffee and cocoa, once for supper. The menu is great, some standard fare and some originals. Good selection. Not too pricey. Not rushed, pleasant ambience, classic Obz establishment. Great vibe, would be happy to take students there and overseas guests. Friendly service.

A favourite for breakfast or lunch for the family. Child Friendly seating and menu. Great hot chocolates and milkshakes galore. French toast has giant servings of bacon and maple syrup. In short, when in doubt, we always come back here.

This is a nice and cosy set up, and they even offer blankets to keep you warm! The food is great, and they have really awesome specials especially for those with a student budget! Haha. Definitely worth checking out, although, there is room for improvement with regards to the customer service by the staff. Other than that, this place is... More
