We have been regular patrons here for years, although lately we have much preferred La Baguette, which is immediately adjacent, for coffee and superb cakes. We decided to return recently to have a light lunch. How disappointing! A bland and unexciting BLAT, although the accompanying...More

Its more than a cafe and it has good attentive staff and value meals. The coffee is great; its the source and the barista. The menu is not exhaustive but the offering is sufficient and the food has taste and appeal. There is inside and...More

This is one of our favourite local cafe's. They have a great reward program called Rewardle. Excellent friendly service and great coffee! Looking forward to my next free coffee.

I used to love coming here. Something has changed. The staff are very dismissive and borderline rude. I miss the happy baristas serving top quality coffees. :( what happened?!

Just a little chicken wrap to share with a friend. Overcooked sliver of unseasoned chicken breast in a wrap the size of a folded hankie. No garnish, nothing on the plate but a pale triangle. $16!!!!!! FFS. Ripped off.
