The service here is always wonderful.
The food here is reasonably good but nothing to write home about, (the steak sandwiches are riddled with gristle).
The drinks tend to be a little audaciously priced but the location and warm ambience make up for it.

It is located on Ormond Road right by the Elwood Village sign. This unpretentious restaurant with sprawling outdoor sidewalk patio with wooden furniture (like picnic tables) looks very casual but, step inside and it is a now fine dining with white linen tables and a well stocked sit up bar. Many locals like to have a drink here in the evenings because of its welcoming atmosphere. I came here several times for breakfast and brunch and one particular meal stood out. I had the 5 Flavour Tasting Entree for brunch one day which I was told varied weekly depending on the chef or available ingredients. On a long narrow plate arrived 5 tasty morsels: crisp pork belly with onion relish; panfried sardines with a mustard cream sauce; spicy chorizo sausage with sultanas; soft shell crab with a light tartar sauce; and a mushroom stuffed with goat cheese. I was really impressed by the selection and flavour. They were all really good especially the soft shell crab and pork belly. To compliment this I had a dark ale from one of the local breweries. They have a good wine and beer selection. They also offer free wifi to their customers. Outdoors on the patio they are dog friendly.
