Restaurant details

The location is great. The Cafe is sort of hidden at the end if an alley and had a great, sort of hipster atmosphere, super relaxed.
We we're a bit disappointed by the food. We went there for breakfast and ordered the eggs beni which we're acceptable but the hollandaise was too acidy, pulled pork was failry average. The acai bowl we got was not very well blended, it contained chunks of ice and was quite tasteless. The coffee was good!

We walked past here one afternoon and decided to come back for breakfast. Breakfast choices were good and covered sweet, savoury, large and small. I had the breakfast burrito and i have to say it is value for money and super tasty. It was also packed with ingredients. My husband had a slight order malfunction, as the order taker entered something different to what we had ordered and paid for, but it was quickly rectified and a free coffee was chucked in without so much as having to ask. Highlights for him were the coffee and the real fruit smoothie. Will come back again.

Went into Uncle joes this morning. Quirky looking place. You walk down an alleyway, past a hairdressers, into a little square which is the cafe. They had a wide selection of sandwiches, rolls, and the aforementioned breakfast burrito. It was very good. Bacon (well done, but not burnt), dried egg (not greasy), home made baked beans (enjoyable, even for someone like me, who doesn't like baked beans), and spinach. Their coffee was a little small, but also very good. No wifi here though. The staff seemed a little overwhelmed when i went in, as it was very busy, but they were very friendly, and my order was brought out quite quickly.

Cool name, attached to a barber shop, strong hipster vibe, laneway style entrance and, on my visit, even had cyclists! However the 2 key reasons for my visit - Food and coffee were a bit disappointing. The coffee was a single origin specifically for espresso but totally lacked any body distinctive flavours. I ordered the eggs benny with pulle pork and it was a hit and miss affair; Bagel = hit, eggs = hit, hollandaise = hit, Pulled pork = miss. I found it lacking in flavour and, despite having substantial amounts of sauce, a bit dry.

A funky lane way leads you to this cool little cafe. Eclectic decor and plenty of seating. We arrived early (it opens at 8) however the manager/owner (not sure which) happened to be outside. We chatted to him and instead of telling us to come back later he brought us in and let us order coffees 20 min before their service would normally begin. So wonderful to have that sort of friendly greeting.
The coffee was excellent and we devoured two each before eating our delicious breakfasts. We walked out full, happy and with a 1kg bag of coffee beans to take home. what more could you ask for. Ticks all the boxes.
