Very impressive and well located cafe. Coffe is very good, main course of salmon was superb and the creme brulee dessert was unbeatable. Friendly and attentive and somewhat fashionable staff. Well priced but can get crowded and some seating areas inside near the front window can get a little cramped. Outdoor seating options afford excellent people watching opportunities. Ample parking in a big carpark nearby out the back. Very classy, highly recommended and I will be back.

Used to live very near this restaurant (in fact worked for one of its previous owners under a different name) ... it's a great location, only wish there was a bigger footpath with big trees on it, but they do have their own under-cover canopy they can set up.

The coffee is great
The food is pretty good to great (depending on the dish)
The prices are reasonable
The staff are friendly

Lots of people meet there for a variety of reasons, personal & business ... and when I was studying at Latrobe Uni, I would sometimes take one of the side tables where it was a bit quieter to study on. You can see that seating in the main image on their website.

Had breakfast there today (Aug 2012). I'm most impressed by a cafe that does good coffee and the guy behind the bar didn't disappoint. Even ordering a mug it wasn't a watered down version that other cafe's often do. Full strength and good creme. Big breakfast was ....well big. Eggs perfect, bacon tasty and mushrooms and spinach part of the meal and not an afterthought. Only disappointment was the huge cransky type sausage which wasn't to my taste. However was good quality so only a minor minus. Also had a Bloody Mary and it was a great one. It was spicy and rich and not too sweet which some tomato juices are. Also included the celery stalk which I like to eat at the end. Overall i'd give 8/10.

Catch up w friends for coffee, delicious range of cakes, and meals. Also a great place for a date.
Great atmosphere but can get a little noisey.
