“a gem and welcome experience”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

We were sent here by the owner of Spec's, a funky eyeglass store. This rather small eatery was a surprise. Wonderful array of creative choices. The food is delicious and the owners were so nice! A young couple owns this place and have done all the remodeling. Charming people.

“Delicious food, relaxing atmosphere!”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

It was a spontaneous decision to have breakfast here one day and what a great one to make. I had the bircher museli with poached seasonal fruit which was to-die-for, lovely coffee, terrific service (water glass refilled regularly!) and a lovely breeze coming in through the front windows. Daily papers to read, great spot for a bit of "me time"!

“A great decision to stop”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

We stopped here last Saturday, just by chance as hubby wanted to look at a "garage sale" a couple of doors up. I have to say that Michael and Mary are running a great ship here. The barista made the perfect cappacino for me and a double shot soy latte for my man. We shared the "breakfast special" and a BLAT and I have to say, the quality of the food was sensational. The store itself is beautifully decorated and has some great "foodstore" items on sale. The quality of the food displayed is great and Mary is a wonderful hostess.

We'd make the trip again from Werribee South. It's worth a visit - why don't you try?

“Great food - sensational coffee”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Always a favourite of mine when I am in town. Dropped in yesterday for lunch. The coffee as always was sensational (they know how to make a proper ristretto machiatto). I ordered one of their B.L.A.T. sandwiches and a mix of their salads - flavours and quality of ingredients are unsurpassed.

If you're in the area and feel like a great coffee or really good food this place is a must.
