Dont ask people what they think of their meal if you dont want an honest answer! Very rude staff and strange food. The cakes in the cabinet look past the use by too.

We have been twice now in a week as we loved the unique meals and the coffee is awesome, whether iced or regular. Placed in the back of a nursery, this cafe has fan cooled indoor or outdoor dining with a funky, hippy atmosphere but the meals are a a little pricey so make a meal out of your visit!

I like the Watertank because for a lunch or coffee meeting it's quiet and you can have a good conversation without having to compete with lots of other people. They make good and healthy lunches and snacks as well as great coffee. If it is really hot though you might consider going somewhere else a bit cooler, though for most of the year the shaded outdoor tables a good.

Poor service (long wait) , small portions, overpriced.
I don't know what it was, but there was this smell wafting through. Smelled a bit like raw sewerage. One would think that a cafe in a nursery would provide nice gardens. Might have been once but the nursery has so many near dead plants it was distracting.

Won't go back.
