“Good food, slow service”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

They do a mean brekkie here but be prepared to wait as it's quite popular for this reason! If you're not in a hurry go for it and they make a wicked milkshake :)

“Good on you for free wifi and good value food”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We spent just about every second day here when we first arrived Darwin. For travellers with no abode and no internet, having free wifi is a massive plus for any cafe (something Australasia has yet to catch up on). Added to that, the prices here are great by Darwin standards (especially the lunch specials), the food more eclectic than most (which isn't hard) and the staff friendly.
The coffee is OK, not the best...(I'll say Cyclone Cafe in Parap is the winner on that front for me). Its the kind of place you can settle in for a while, yes they do take a lot of time when busy, but if you have the time to wait, its worth it. p.s.Try the Omelette Supreme.

“Great breakfasts!!”
Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

I have been here many times for breakfast and in my opinion they do one of the beat breakfasts in Darwin. The only problem is when it gets busy, which it does every weekend you wait 45 mins to an hour for food which puts you off going.

“Simple boho sort of place with good coffee”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

Tasty simple food, locals go there, coffee good. You know you are in Darwin. Journos came here during the Dili uprising and Hugh Jackman ate here during filming of Australia (and I missed him!!!)
