“Cafe 1830., next to Red Dog??”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

Not sure if 1830 is part of Red Dog but had the most distasteful breakfast there.
Came out cold with hard toast., no butter., rubbery hard poached eggs that were all precooked that I saw lined up on a tea towel in the kitchen area.
Mushrooms were horrible., like they'd been sautéed in balsamic vinegar or something ..
Bacon tasted old.., only good thing was the coffee.., forget the big breakfast
Staff were heard swearing at the top of their voices using the F word and the C word.. My 8 yr old daughter and myself were disgusted!!

“Great coffee and venue”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

Went here for a coffee with a colleague, the location is in the mall so great for people watching. It was cold on the day we went and there are heaters so it was quite pleasant. The coffee was really nice. I asked about a slice of cake eg. carrot/banana cake as there didn't seem to be any cakes in the display cabinet. The manager said there was cake available, which consisted of one cake in the cabinet. I thought this was odd being Monday at 11am that they would have stock for the week. I asked what time they opened for breakfast Manager couldn't decide what time he was going to open the next morning (due to works in the mall) so this put me off having breakfast the next morning (didn't want to turn up and find it wasn't open).

The coffee was really nice, quick service, venue nice. Obviously popular.

“Great way to watch the passing "people" traffic!”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

Cafe is located right in the mall and it is a great place to sit and enjoy a coffee or meal and to watch the passing "people" traffic! Also, close to gift and souvenir shops and art galleries.
