great breakfast, the ricotta hotcakes are the best I've ever had. Service is ok, they don't really pay close attention to when you're looking to order. the amazing breakfast menu is worth it though.

Love popping in here to one of my favourite local haunts for a great coffee or lunch after a trip to my hairdresser nearby. Coffee is always good and the service is second to none. LOVE the baby chino, hot chocolate and pastry for the little people too. The salads for lunch are a hit with me, especially when I am trying to "be good"!

Attended at breakfast on a Sunday and found the service very good. Although I only had coffee it appeared to be a very popular breakfast spot with both internal and extenal seating. Will go for breakfast when in area again.

Despite being in a good location and serving good food, the poor attitude of the staff really lets this place down.
It feels like all the waiters/waitresses would rather be somewhere else.
Surry hills has lots of great cafes, this isn't one if them.

Never again, not only is the food & coffee average and prices high but the service is just appalling & the staff rude and not very helpful. The owner herself is the rudest of them all so I guess they are just following her example. Have moved on and so have my friends. Plenty of great cafes in Surry Hills, give this one a miss.

We appreciate all comments on our Cafe and appreciate the positives and not so positives.However,your comments regarding the staff and in particular my manager require me as the owner to investigate further.I welcome you to elaborate further on your comments and detail specifically what you found so rude and appalling. I can then review the recordings from that day to deal with my staff accordingly.
