I only needed coffee and what I got was really good and well priced. The old building is very interesting and the cafe has a good range of seats and tables, but is a bit drafty by the front door.

Yum!! Nice vibe, yummy food. Agree with others- the porridge was great.
Coffee was not my favorite but ok
Near the train station easy to find

Great social enterprise concept. Works on both levels, ie as an altruistic social enterprise and as a very good cafe.

The decor is quirky and on trend. I chose the Thai red curry. This is a rustic and tasty dish that I enjoyed. A lovely meal on a cool late winter day. Good vegetables throughout. I particularly loved the beautifully cooked brown rice as well. This was a good dish

The world’s most beautiful woman had the mushroom toastie. She reported this very tasty but more of a red capsicum toastie with more of that than the promised mushroom. Again, she polished off the lot.

The coffees to finish were superb. The coffee here is of an excellent standard.

This is a good place. Food was good, coffee was good and the service was great too. This is a very sound option in this area for breakfast or lunch.

Stopped in a on cold July day and the Spiced Cauliflower & Potato soup was just what we needed, great taste. The salad we tried was the broccoli and potato salad it was tasty too. The cappuccino was very good, although we did have to remind the 'volunteer servers several times' before we got it. The servers may be volunteers but it is clear that the cook staff is not because the food was great.
