The coffee and food is OK, but not as good as the Java Lava at Pennant Hills. My coffee was not hot enough but my muffin was great. A pretty large menu and seems to be very popular for both kids and adults. As it's...More

Not too bad, but not one of the best either. Staff okay, but they do have a pretty big pot of tea, but not as big as it looks.

I have been here a few times now with my boyfriend and some friends for breakfast. It was a very chilled setting with some nice breakfast. The crème brulee frappes are amazing! It's not too pricey, perfect for a quick, quiet breaky.

Yummy food, mid-range prices and friendly staff. Plenty of seating indoors and outdoors and they are open early til late. Also serve alcoholic drinks which is a bonus.

I stopped in to grab a coffee on the way to the station and have to say it was the worst coffee I've ever been sold. I can get cheaper coffee in the city (and it's much tastier) - definitely won't be back
