“Amazing flavours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

I've been here twice now and both times have been blown away by the flavours incorporated into their meals. The meals are enormous so unless you enjoy a very large meal it's best to share with someone. Can be quite expensive but not too bad if you're sharing.

“No value for money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

Quirky menu and lots of potential, but Dissapointing outcome. My hubby and I had been recommended countless times and went in for a Friday treat. Dissapointing there was no lunch menu but was directed to a cabinet full of fresh baked goods. While they look appealing and very yummy the price is through the roof! Due to no lunch menu I ordered a cabinet fritatta assuming it would come with one of the delicious looking salads. Sadly I was told only rocket leaves and that cabinet salads were at an additional cost. Mind boggling to me how a business can charge so much for average esized baked items.
My partner ordered the pulled pork burger. Also very pricey. Food wait was 35minutes. However the cafe was extremely busy and seemed understaffed. The pork was very tasty - maybe recommend steak knives as the bread nearly impossible to cut.. Excellent atmosphere just far to overpriced!

“Something different for breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

I took my family here after being here myself a couple if times. They had not heard of it. The meals are massive so satisfied my teenage boys, we went on a Monday morning so not too busy but I believe weekends are crazy. Although not too busy we did wait a while for drinks and food. The food is great much better than from manufactured chain stores, but you do pay a price for it as it is so expensive I could not afford to bring my family there too often for meals so it is a real treat place.

“Order a meal between 2”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

Went for breakfast with a group of friends after hearing only good reports. Firstly they do not take bookings so you need to get there before 9am on a weekend to even get a table. The outside and decor is not that flash. You have to order at the counter and get your own water out of the fridge. That is the negative side. The food, large range of teas and coffee is what people go here for. The servings are massive and can easily feed 2. The scrambled eggs are fantastic. The toast is described as doorstop toast and it literally is that big. The food could be spread out on the plate a bit more rather then a huge big tower in the middle of the plate. The meals are quite expensive at around $20 a meal but again split it between 2. We had our plates cleared away as did all the other tables unlike in a previous post.
