Staff just seemed to not bother

Had 2 fantastic breakfasts here. Scrambled eggs were awesome as was the breakfast burrito. Really good coffee as well. Highly recommend this cafe. Staff were very friendly and service was great. Will be going back

Went for Saturday brunch...came back twice to say what we ordered wasn't available...ran out of sour dough bread...food very greasy..service very slow...but coffee was good. Maybe just got them on a bad day...apparently they had just introduced a new menu perhaps they had misordered?

Thank you very much for the review and I apologise for your average experience. Yes it is always a little tricky introducing a whole new menu and teething difficulties that arise from the first day can occur unfortunately. We as staff apologise again and hope your next experience (we hope there is one!!) is more pleasant.

I love this place - simple honest food just like their sister restaurant Sweet Mothers Kitchen.

Been here loads of times but never put in a review. The food here is always good and the service the same every time, which is great, as is the value for money.

They have a couple of specialities - key lime pie is amazing, snickers milk shake, the mexican fare is definitely worth a look, burgers are yum as is there bacon and egg bun!

They also have quite good deals that my colleagues and I make the most of on a regular basis. Bacon and egg bun half price after 9am and Kids meals are half price in the weekends at the moment.....my kids also love this place.
