“You will want seconds.......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

Polite and friendly waiters, attentive service and an absolutely incredible breakfast. I ordered the holumi and avocado on sour dough. I added bacon as an extra and it came out all so beautifully presented. The coffee is good and the location in the old IXL jam factory is wonderful.

“Great food. Crap service.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

The toast and jam was fabulous-even take away. The service was terrible. Counter staff got my order wrong twice, then argued with me about it. The jam was especially delicious. The croissants are lovely and MASSIVE. One to share is plenty. Interesting assortment of largely useless kitchen utensils in store. Provided good eye candy while waiting for my order to be rectified. Twice.

“Good find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Had pasta dish and surprised that a cafe could russle up pasta as delicious as a genuine good Italian Restaurant. Compliment to the chef/s. As long as the food is good, am not fussed about the service. Loved the atrium. Good holiday feel in this place even though I am not a tourist. Shall return again for more pasta.

“Best breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

Loved the ricotta pancakes. A really nice place to have breakfast and you can eat in, on the harbour side or in the Atrium. Reasonable prices and next door to an interesting Aboriginal Art shop.

“Nice coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Courtyard sitting area was a good option on days when outside was cooler. Service was a little slow on the coffee - but taste made up for it.
