We were taken there by our son, who lives nearbuye, for breakfast. Had a table in the small backyard area, which was dog friendly. Breakfast was good if a little pricey and the service was also good and friendly. Restaurant is situated in an old canery factory so there is an old industrial feel about the place, which is rather quirky. worth a visit if you are in the area.

We took a friend to lunch at Kitchen by Mike - what a disaster. Getting there at noon, still meant 20 minutes in a queue to order. The stripped down canteen theme was taken to the extreme. The scratched enamel plates they serve the food on were really wet and food disappointing. Still there at 1.30pm waiting for our coffees despite going up to the counter to remind them 3 times and the tables were never cleared. We sat beside a pile of scraps, plates and cups from a number of sittings. It was winter and cold, but only one of the heaters was on. The doors were open and it was very draughty. The staff stayed firmly in place behind the counter and no one ventured to clear the tables or close the doors. Our coffees eventually arrived COLD. Annoyed and embarrassed by our experience, I emailed "Mike" and no response. So my advice is to stay away - there are plenty of better places for good food and service in Sydney.

It is not a cheap meal but we really enjoyed our breakfast. I had the bircher mueslie with nuts & honey ..yummy. Don't expect large meals but all the ingredients are all fresh . The sourdough bread is so delicious. Great atmosphere & the service was very quick. Great outside garden area as well where doggies are welcome.

Seven friends decided to have breakfast here yesterday. I had previously had lunch here a while back and thought it was really good, despite being overpriced.
Most settled for Eggs Benedict or Royale and one the big breakfast. The big breakfast arrived swimming in grease.....particularly unappetising and almost all the eggs were very undercooked. Just to make it even more difficult to eat, they came on a sourdough roll, halved and very dry or over baked but whatever, very hard to cut. Coffees were all ok, service wait a bit slow. We were all unimpressed and frankly wouldn't bother to return. On a positive note, it is a great post-industrial space and certainly worth a look at the eye-wateringly expensive goods for sale.

These guys understand honest food done well with taste fresh ingredients and layers of flavour

Desserts are not to be overlooked.
