Went there for breakfast. Weren't greeted when we arrived. Not asked how we were, or would we like anything. Pretty much ignored.
Menu was expensive compared to most other restaurants, especially those in the outskirts.
Wanted to order bacon and eggs, not on the menu, and they weren't crazy about serving it. Eggs were hard on one piece of toast, no tomato, nothing.
The others had Eggs Benedict, which I think was OK but holland arise sauce was cold?
My wife had avocado on toast for $12.50 .
It was unripe and tasteless.
Again service was pathetic.
The worst restaurant I've ever been to on the Gold Coast!

We went one Sunday to this little quaint tucked away cafe and were surprised and pleased with the food and value for money. The raspberry friands were very healthy but tasted like they contained no sugar as were not at all sweet. The lentil burger was exquisite on a toasted high bun with very fresh salad but lacking in sweet chilli sauce or any kind of Mayo. They serve the milkshakes in glass handled jars which was different. Lots of vintage wares adorn the shelves and mismatched furniture makes for an interesting atmosphere.

Have had several meals at this lovely cafe now, all gluten free, and with enough 'normal' food items on the menu to satisfy my partner! If you need a gluten free treat, there are usually cakes and slices that are gluten/dairy/wheat free, and a word of warning, their muffins usually sell out by 11.00am! The staff are friendly and helpful (not every place will happily grate some fresh ginger into your lemongrass tea for you...), the decor is welcoming and there is lots of retail therapy available if needed with sweet decorator items, bags and candles. Definately recommended.
