Attended on one of the busiest days with the street parade on the mall. Yet the coffee was still very good. The meals were of a reasonable price, good size, and tasty. It is a pleasant place to eat, full of light and helpful staff.Will be returning again soon for another great breakfast.

We popped in for a quick lunch. The beef nachos were delicious & the lamb salad was pretty good. Wasn't quick service & could be a bit better organized but its Alice Springs so we just accepted that's how things are here.

The portions with the meals are really odd; lots of meat and little veg, or lots of sauce and little food. It's ok, but I really don't like eating here much. I prefer eating at home.

Love to catch up with friends for a coffee or Brunch here. Easy access, good food and relaxed atmosphere. Never feel rushed and always enjoy our meal.

This is a great venue that is in need of a good chef/cook. I am a local and go there often for the great coffee. The woman that makes the coffees is bril.
Recently I ordered a breakfast and asked if they served it on grain bread. The answer was a cheerful "Yes we do". It was a scrabbled egg & bacon brekkie, so it was easy.
The bread was not grain, but brown bread. The eggs were watery, (Too much milk mix judging by the pale colour). The bacon was the cheapy from Woolies/Coles and was way, way over cooked.
Much has been spent on the décor of this lovely place but the food standard is very, very ordinary. I suppose I may be a little too critical having owned several Cafes myself, but good business practise dictates that the primary function (In this case the sale of food), should be the your greatest concern. A beautiful décor may attract customers through the door, but it is the menu that brings them back through that same door.
I have frequented Cafes that have very ordinary; bordering on decidedly drab decors that serve up the most exquisite foods. They have people waiting outside to come in for a reason. They have excellent food.
Picilos, you have this wonderful opportunity to be the best, don't blow it!
