“Great for coffee and donuts.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

We initially visited the restaurant for an evening meal. The service was excellent but overall consensus of the group was very average food. The mains were small and overpriced. Menu was limited, and unexciting. However we revisited for coffee and their amazing donuts. As expected their service was great. Overall, great cafe but below par restaurant.

“Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed a work breakfast here. Really good food, service and atmosphere. The corn fritters were lovely and the donuts, which you inject with a choice of custard, jelly or chocolate were fantastic!

“Not Disappointed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Some locals recommended we try Mister D's so we gave it a go. Excellent service, great atmosphere, and a mixture of families and stylish locals gave the place a great vibe. We ordered the Cloudy Bay clams with squid ink fettuccine and the veal tortellini with a fantastic broth. Prices were spot on for the quality. An extensive wine list was as expected. Definitely worth a visit!

“Great coffee and cake spot and lunch too!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

A great experience - we were just passing buy and popped in for a coffee and cake and loved it.

The building is amazing the coffee the best and the tea real - no supermarket T Bags here. The cakes were different rally original and amazing - all of the food that come passed us looked incredible! Try the homemade doughnuts with chocolate custard - they can't be beaten.

Prices fine considering the size and quality!

Good for families and couples and kids.

Service great.

“Good, but expected better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

Had a very pleasant dinner here on Friday night. After the great reviews in Cuisine magazine we probably expected a bit more from the Bistro. The lights were very bright and the tables close together - probably because it is more of a lunch-time than a dinner place. The food was fine but nothing outstanding. We had read the rave reviews about the donuts, but they don't serve them at night so we had to miss out
